We all appreciate the cockup Mahesh made of physics and consciousness! A friend of mine, who was one of Mahesh's spreaders-of-the-word in the early 60's and is now a retired professor of physics, opined flat out that Mahesh didn't know anything about physics. Well, no surprise there. Mahesh's modus operandi or mahesh operandi, if you prefer, was to cobble together in his all-knowing and superior way the babblings of others. To his credit, he could make crap sound good, even desirable.
Here's a link (http://www.amazon.com/Hidden-Dimensions-Unification-Consciousness-Columbia/dp/0231141513/ref=ntt_at_ep_dpi_9) that might be of interest - at least reading the reviews down the bottom of the page are quite impressive.
I don't even have the book yet and didn't know Wallace had written it until just a few minutes ago. I was actually looking through Amazon for another of Wallace's books. But it strikes me that since our various avenues of "consciousness" taken together is what has manufactured our systematic understanding of what we call physics, the two must have some relationship; just not the one Mahesh prattled on about in order make himself seem so wonderfully specially.
I'm familiar with much of B. Allan Wallace's work. I find it extremely useful in its context of Buddhist understanding of the world we inhabit and valuable in furthering my understanding of not only Buddhism as an intellectual object, but also as a means to facilitating a furtherance of what the Buddha meant by awakening.
Just as an aside, I think it should be noted that "awakening" in the Buddhist context and "enlightenment" in the context of Maheshism have no relationship whatsoever. But I think awakening in the Buddhist context is attainable and desirable. AND I know that it doesn't come with silly rajas wearing Burger King hats or price tags, or any of the bankrupting other crapspackle of Maheshism that's supposed to make Mahesh's delusional predictions come true. It also doesn't EVER involve blaming the victim.
