About the book:
Contemporary science and physics try to avoid topics such as consciousness and its nature. It considers them only as a product of brain activity. However, as quantum mechanics suggests, the phenomenon of consciousness (the conscious observer) might be closely related to the physical nature of our world. The famous Schrödinger’s Cat thought experiment (and not only that) allows us to view the world from a different angle than we were taught in school. The universe may not be just a mass of inanimate matter in which life emerged as a random anomaly, but instead it could be the product of a principle that privileges the conscious observer over the observed. This view radically changes the way we understand the world.
