In February 1971, as Apollo 14 astroanaut Edgar Mitchell hurtled Earthward through space, he was engulfed by a profound sense of universal connectedness He intuitively sensed that his presence and that of the planet in the window were all part of a deliberate, universal process and that the glittering cosmos itself was in some way conscious The experience was so overwhelming, Mitchell knew his life would never be the same....

The Way of the Explorer: An Apollo Astronaut's Journey Through the Material and Mystical Worlds, Revised Edition Reviews
In my "why?" mode, I read this book by former Apollo astronaut Edgar Mitchell. He writes about his search for origins of consciousness and a metaphysical experience he had while on the way back from the moon. He started a foundation to study the experience and this book relates its results after 25 years of research on the topic. This edition dates from 2008, a few years before he died. He describes the Universe as conscious and its growth through trial and error from its origin in the zero point field to where we are today. It, according to his beliefs, continues to evolve in this way. There are many discussion points along the way.
Try not to miss this fine gentleman's deeply honest assessment of his experiences and his thoughts. This book opens up the gates of reality that we have kept closed for fear of wrongful accusations - if you have ever experienced intuition or second-guessing or have felt an inexplicable leaning a certain way toward a choice or a thought, READ THIS BOOK. I intend to re-read it over and over. Believe me, it is well worth your time.
Finally an astronaut who is not afraid to deal with God in our universe and creation. It proves science and faith can be brought together in an intelligent conclusion. Dr. Mitchell is so intelligent it sometimes takes awhile to read different parts that get complicated. I love that he has a foundation that explores these beliefs.
Great subject, well written. First half is a little slow and somewhat redundant but still interesting because of the history involved. I'm not done with the book yet but the second half is more personally engaging. I appreciate the scientific exploration of this subject that was so ignored and disparaged by the "serious" science community for so long. It was a nice validation of a similar experience I had gazing at the Milky Way from my rooftop. Thanks Edgar Mitchell !
This book was just what I was looking for in my research as an artist. I wanted to read about the perspective/realtionship of science/spirituallity and how the information might relate to metaphorical imagery in my paintings. Mitchell gets a little too wordy with scientific jargon at times but he warns the reader early on that you are welcome to skip certain chapters if you wish? I would recommend this book for anyone that is looking for an indepth and personal perspective of technology and its actual relationship to the organic from zero field to the outer reaches of our universe.
I. enjoyed this book.great insight from a man in the science field I would recommend this book
WOW.....this book gives you a whole different perspective of space and life here on earth. It was hard to put down. Goes into some heavy scientific details that can go over your head. A must read.
