These 4 volumes in one set are a veritable tour de force and the sine qua non of any academic or scholarly library. It represents a watershed in the worldwide perennial wisdom literature tradition. In a clear and systematic way, it explores, in the manner of the Universal Wisdom Tradition, the unfolding of Consciousness from its Unmanifest and Implicate realms, through Cosmos, and Man. Readers will find here a goldmine of wisdom, information, and resources. The principal theme is to show how the Universal Wisdom Tradition—the Perennial Philosophy—and the corroboration of some of its tenets by enlightened science of the quantum era, broadens and contextualises mainstream science beyond its existing metaphysical limitations. In this way the author believes many of the intractable problems and conundrums of science, concerning the deeper issues of consciousness and life, can be squarely faced and resolved.


"The trilogy at hand will prove a most useful textbook for every student of esoteric wisdom and modern science. It reveals the ontological unity of the Eastern and Western branches of our perennial wisdom and shows how science that seeks truth will inevitably transform itself, once again, towards a great synthesis of both traditions. It heralds the new science of consciousness and offers us the roadmap and the necessary tools and impetus to achieve it." —Vasileios Basios (BSc, MSc, Ph.D. in Physics of Complex Systems) University of Brussels (ULB)

"I know of no other work of such scope and depth relating to the ultimate questions raised by human existence both in terms of our origins and destiny." —David Lorimer is Chair of the Galileo Commission and International Programme Director of the Scientific and Medical Network, Editor of Paradigm Explorer

"Unfolding Consciousness is a remarkable tour de force through spiritual meanders of esoteric traditions, from East and West, and their dialogue with modern science. It is as fascinatingly provocative, as it is informative - and it will equally challenge the scientist, the philosopher, and the artist." —Dr. Ana-Maria Pascal, BA (Hons), MA, MBA, PhD, SFHEA, Principal Lecturer, Regent's University London

"This book presents a comprehensive, lucid and well-written overview, with careful attention to detail and yet full of far-ranging and potentially transformative ideas." —Rupert Sheldrake PhD, biologist and author of The Science Delusion

"There is nothing more pressing in our day than this challenge for us to act in synergy with the planet (and, in more esoteric terms, the macrocosm). Bilimoria shows that the ancient axiom that "man is the measure of all things" can be revitalised in the context of contemporary science." —B Les Lancaster, Professor Emeritus of Transpersonal Psychology, Liverpool John Moores University and Director, the Alef Trust

"When you consider the scope, width and erudition of this book, it is not surprising that it took its author over 20 years to complete. Most philosophical books take a single view of the problem of consciousness, either scientific or philosophical, but Edi Bilimoria takes a much wider, more inclusive view."  —Dr. Peter Fenwick is Emeritus Consultant Neuropsychiatrist and Neuropsychologist at both the Maudsley and John Radcliffe hospitals. He was a senior lecturer at King's College, London, where he worked as a consultant at the Institute of Psychiatry. He worked with the Mental Health Group at the University of Southampton, and held a visiting professorship at the Riken Neurosciences Institute in Japan. He is President Emeritus of the Scientific and Medical Network 

"As we enter the age of post-materialist science, in which consciousness is seen as a fundamental rather than incidental feature of the Universe, there is an urgent need to extend science to accommodate the mental and spiritual domains. The unique and remarkable achievement of this work is to put this endeavour in a proper conceptual and historical context and only someone with the extraordinary breadth of vision of the author could have achieved this." —Bernard Carr, Emeritus Professor of Mathematics and Astronomy, Queen Mary University of London, and President of the Scientific and Medical Network
