Gary Zukavs' books

  1. Jul 17, 2003 #1
    I used to lurk and occasionally post here but I don't remember what name I used. Anyway, I just wondered what everyone thought of Gary Zukavs' books. Obviously he takes a mystical view of things and for a physics student (which am not) it probably isn't the best material. I guess I am wondering what actual physicists think of the parallels he draws between modern physics (QM) and eastern philosophy? Does it look like reality might = patterns of ORGANIC energy?

    Re: Zukav

    I think the consensus is that it's mostly garbage.
    I resist such an abrupt point of view.
