Editorial Reviews
Book Description
Overall this book is a paradigm-breaking book for science in that it reveals in some detail a viable larger perspective and framework for scientific description of nature and human evolvement in that framework. It is also a conscious-raising book and a hope-raising book for humanity in that it shows people how to use their own intentionality to bring about...beneficial...changes...in their own bodies. Such changes naturally lead to significant growth in the individual's consciousness.

      How to See the Unseeable & Know the Unknowable, November 8, 2001
      Reviewer: Cynthia S. Larson "www.realityshifters.com" (San Francisco bay area, CA USA) - See all my reviews
      (TOP 500 REVIEWER)    (REAL NAME)   
      Dr. Tiller's excellent book, SCIENCE AND HUMAN TRANSFORMATION, boldly goes where few books dare to enter. Tiller presents a fascinating model of our universe as being multi-dimensional with a spiritual component. This book will likely be enjoyed most by readers who have experienced psychic or psycho-kinetic events in their lives, and are seeking a rational explanation for what might be going on. Those who have not yet had such experiences may not be convinced that such things exist -- even after reading Tiller's fascinating account of how he created a gas-discharge device in the 1970's while he was a professor at Stanford University which demonstrated that "anyone could produce a positive (psychokinetic) result".

      SCIENCE AND HUMAN TRANSFORMATION is a joy to read for anyone who loves to play with new ideas and theories. It contains a wealth of schematic diagrams, charts, equations and references to support the theories Tiller presents. This book will most appeal to readers who love books they can ponder for some time, as it is packed with such ideas as: sensory arrays, etheric light cones, nodal networks and holograms.

      The main point of SCIENCE AND HUMAN TRANSFORMATION is that the component of mind and consciousness has long been excluded from scientific study, and even omitted from Theories Of Everything (TOEs). Obviously, if we're going to have a theory of everything it had better include consciousness! Tiller knows this quite well, and artfully constructs a bridge for future scientists with open minds to cross over to a place where unseen things (such as human energy fields) have huge effects. If we want to know what has eluded us for so long, we need to go to the very places which are currently least well understood. SCIENCE AND HUMAN TRANSFORMATION provides a sturdy bridge for us to reach those previously unknown places.

      Author's rebuttal to Roger Stout's Review, September 20, 2000
      Reviewer: William A. Tiller, Ph.D. (Palo Alto, California) - See all my reviews
      I suspect that Roger Stout set out to try to trash this book without first going through the effort of seriously reading it. This can be readily seen from the word equation that he misquotes. He obviously didn't read the surrounding text with any care to see what kind of a pedagogical bridge I was building via that set of word equations. The point about direct space and reciprocal space that seems to have eluded Stout is that, together, they aoutomatically provide for both the particle aspect and the wave aspect of substance, the two fundamemental but entangled features dealt with by quantum mechanics. The novel approach that I have taken in this book allows one to distinquish these two complementary aspects simultaneously. Furthermore, it is surprising to me that a supposed professional engineer would make the mistake of trying to compare the distance scale of reciprocal space since this is a frequency scale. They do not have the same units of measurement and, therefore, cannot be directly compared, as undergraduate engineers in all universities are taught. If Stout had not been so intent on his "lashing" goal, he might have realized that the very small in direct space corresponds with the very high frequency region in reciprocal space. Likewise, the very large in direct space corresponds with the very small frequency region of reciprocal space. Since high frequency for photons corresponds with high particle energy, he shold have at least seen how the particle size scale in the angstrom and below range match qualitatively with the energetics of fundamental particles. As an illustrative example, if a time domain pattern has a 10 nanosecond interval, then its frequency domain counterpart along the inverse time coordinate would be comprised of a set of waves localized around 0.628 gigahertz for the first band. Likewise, if one has a direct spaces spherical object of 1 angstrom diameter, the first band counterpart in reciprocal space would be comprised of waves in the 6.28 x 10 ^8 cm ^( -1) range. Changing the scale of direct space units that one wishes to use just produces a corresponding scale change of the reciprcal space units one must use. Stout states how much he liked Talbot's book, "The Holographic Universe", yet he seems to have missed the crucial point that the entire basis of holography is wave diffraction. Further, the resultant wave intensity diffracted from any kind of direct space geometrical object can be shown to arise from the modulus of the Fourier Transform for that geometrical shape. He should have learned this in his electrical engineering classes. It is sad that Stout was so intent on trashing this book rather than reading it with an ip mind-he might have learned something useful for his life! As a final comment by the author to this open forum , this book was not in any way casually written, and I know that is is challenging for some readers. However, one should keep in mind tht it was based on 35 years of personal experimentation and thought by an acknowledged world-class expert in several areas of academic science. This same author taught for over 30 years at one of the most prestigious universities in the world, Stanford University, and was selected to be Chairman to study these new areas of human experience. During his industrial and academic career, he has published over 300 peer-reviewed scientific papers in various international journals plus 3 three technical books, all of which have meaningfully aided the evolution of the materials science and materials engineering fields. Can Stout, the trasher, claim as much! In today's world, unfortunately, it seems very easy to trash the works of others. It is much more difficult to constructively build upon them. Roger Stout would be well served by paying more attention to his intenttions than to his misquided logic.

      Hope for science and engineering, April 4, 2002
      Reviewer: A reader
      One needs a deep intuitive mind to appreciate this book. It's an excellent book that holds a beacon of light to the future of science in America which has become so warped with lack of intuition. Currently, we are following an old paradigm of dark ages "materialistic science and theories" - it's very hard for someone who is still stuck in dark ages to appreciate the value
      of intuition which comes through understanding and experience of subtle energies. In anycase, people might argue over the value of this book, as a biomedical engineer and a scientist, I must say that Prof. Tiller has made full use of this Stanford position to bring to the world the best, instead of playing politics with funding agencies and approval of his peers for his self-preservation or ego gratification. An excellent book only for those with an OPEN HEART and MIND (BOTH!)

      Why Read This Book?, June 28, 2001
      Reviewer: Baltic2000 (Philadelphia, PA) - See all my reviews
      This book is truly revolutionary and because it is, it will elicit the disdain of conventional linear thinkers--as it has.

      You "bounded," conventional scientists out there who laugh at this book and criticize it for not presenting scientific evidence and "proof"--let me ask you, if one is exploring boundaries, how can one present the kind of evidence you are seeking?

      And it will be praised by those who dare to explore the unknown and make speculative connections.

      If you are interested in exploring non-linear ways of thinking and if you are interested in the intersection of physics and biology this book is definitely a must read for you.

      On the other hand, if you are not a scientist but have a strong intellectual bent and can digest dense scientific material you might be able to plow through and enjoy the book. But you will need to have a reason to read it. For example, if you are interested in Feng Shui or the Chinese concept of "ch'i and would like to see if there could be a scientific basis for these ancient Chinese ideas and practices, then you'll probably be rewarded.

      I strongly recommend this book for those who are open-minded and ready to go on a boundary-challenging, albeit uncertain journey, one that can only be enjoyed if one is willing to do without our familiar intellectual crutches for the duration.

      Science + Superstition = Nonsence, June 21, 2001
      Reviewer: A reader
      I cannot believe this man is a professor at Stanford University. I was looking for a book that would present a scientific explanation for unexplained phenomenon. This book is pseudoscience and superstition from a mind stuck in a christian paradigm.

      Tiller vs. Stout, June 4, 2001
      Reviewer: A reader
      Having read the controversy between Dr. Tiller and Mr. Stout, I have to say that Mr. Stout's notion of science (what he calls "real science")is narrow and reductionist.

      I applaud Dr. Tiller and his co-author for stepping out of the old reductionist confines of "real science" to open our eyes to its human potential. There are many valuable avenues opened up by the book, areas where there could be great transformative potential. The one that I am most familiar with is the relationship between what Dr. Tiller talks about and the Chinese practice of Feng Shui.

      As someone who grew up observing the positive effects of Feng Shui on the lives of those who believed and practiced it, Dr. Tiller's book was an eye-opener as it provides the beginnings of a scientific basis for Feng Shui.

      For those of us who are interested in the human potential of science, this is a must read. It is not for those, like Mr. Stout, whose paradigm of science is so narrowly reductionist that anything more expansive is immediately viewed as a threat and an opportunity to go on the attack.

      Finally, lest Stout and others like him should disparage people based on their lack of credentials, I have a Ph.D and was trained at one of the top universities in this country. I have also taught at the elite university where Dr. Tiller spent many years of his distinguished career as a leading scientist.
