Book Review: Paths Between Head and Heart by Oliver Robinson

We have finally stepped into the vision of the Aquarian Age of seeing the bigger picture and having the ability to create those bridges of connection between what is seen and what has long been the stuff of imagination and speculation. Paths Between Head and Heart: Exploring the Harmonics of Science and Spirituality by Oliver Robinson engages the reader in becoming receptive to the correlations between the factual and provable world of science and the still indefinable and often immeasurable world of spirituality. The whole of which is a rather large undertaking to be written by a working scientist.

WHEN ALBERT EINSTEIN WAS IN HIS LATE FIFTIES, HE WROTE AN ARTICLE CALLED “PHYSICS AND REALITY” IN WHICH HE CONCLUDED THAT SCIENCE RESTS ON UNKNOWABLE MYSTERIES…. THAT THE THEORIES AND FORMULAE OF SCIENTIFIC KNOWLEDGE CONVEY ONLY PART OF REALITY. BEYOND THEM, HE SURMISED, LIE THE IMMEASURABLE, THE INEXPLICABLE AND EVEN THE MIRACULOUS. 1.

I am curious about what has been the motivation for a scientist to pursue and explore the more esoteric philosophies and ultimately write a book about these topics. And, I have read many books where the information has been sterile and wholly based on detached analysis of what has been gathered for research purposes. Robinson’s offering is clearly not one of those books. He holds a BSc in psychology with counseling degrees and is a senior lecturer in psychology at the University of Greenwich. But beyond those credentials, one has only to look at this book’s endnotes to see the thorough and in-depth research that went into the writing of Paths Between Head and Heart using an impressive collection of concise scientific texts and well-respected staples of writings on the matters of spirituality. The result is a book wherein the reader can feel the resonance of what has been experienced and learned from these materials by the author, giving this book a depth of authenticity that motivates the reader’s own curiosity to know more…..  Read More Here…
