For Professor Roger Hart, life truly began after he almost lost his -- in a horrific fall off the slopes of Mount Everest that he miraculously survived. This near-death experience sparked a desire in him to devote his studies to the very nature of human consciousness, in order to unlock the code of reality that binds our world.

On an adventure of discovery that would take him around the world, Hart would experience life-altering transcendental events in Tibet, Morocco, and Tierra del Fuego -- opening the door to a true understanding of the nature of man. In this groundbreaking volume, he explores the participation of consciousness in the creation of reality, challenging the traditional scientific view of time, space, and objectivity -- and describing in detail his own metaphysical journey, which has involved synchronicity, precognition, and telekinesis. It is an exploration of the very things that make us human -- and a quest that touches upon the meaning of life itself.

“Those with a thing for physics and an openness to Eastern philosophy will appreciate the vigor and the clarity of Hart’s ideas about how we simulate reality, create time, and shape the world with our thoughts.” -- Kirkus

“In this metaphysical autobiography, Hart projects his life story -- expeditions, living in exotic lands, escaping his strict parents, and making love -- against the backdrop of relativity, quantum physics, foreknowledge, and mysticism. . . . Hart concludes that it is possible to be outside normal space-time, within the quantum ground where all times are the present and events are synchronized across vast distances. A thought-provoking read...” -- Library Journal

“…it’s a stimulating and entertaining read, as much a tale of boy’s own adventure as metaphysical speculation -- ripping holiday reading for the fortean traveler.”--Fortean Times
