Reviews

Science may still be a long way from measuring the quality of human consciousness, but it can already detect its presence in the brain's electric frequencies. Drawing on the research of neuroscientist Rodolfo Llinas, which connects consciousness with the presence of 40 HZ neural oscillations in the human brain, the authors of The Quantum Self attempt to conceptualize the spiritual state of "higher consciousness" within the realm of quantum physics. Going one step further than Llinas, Zohar and Marshall propose that these frequencies are evidence of spiritual intelligence, or the "intelligence of the soul." They define SQ as "unitive" thinking and describe it in physical terms as the high frequency oscillatory activity that binds the proto-consciousness in all single-cell life into a unified, meaningful whole within certain special structures, such as the human brain. Of the neural cells involved in conscious experience, they write: "They behave as many individual voices that have become one voice in a choir. No known phenomenon can generate this kind of coherence, but it is the rule in quantum processes." The unity of all living things that is at the core of Buddhist philosophy serves as a natural segue from quantum physics to metaphysics. Unsurprisingly, Buddhist, Hindu and Hebrew texts provide the foundation for the authors' prescriptions for increasing spiritual intelligence in the latter half of this engrossing and inevitably controversial book.

'An interesting read and will be a useful resource in terms of quotes, historic sources and the ability to make a quick check on your own SQ' PEOPLE MANAGEMENT

As a measure of intelligence, IQ is well known and established. In 1996 Daniel Goleman published Emotional Intelligence; so now there is EQ, emotional quotient. Zohar, an Oxford teacher and author, and Marshall, a psychiatrist and author, now bring us SQ, spiritual quotient. The authors contend that while computers have IQ and animals can have EQ, it is SQ that sets humans apart. SQ isn't necessarily connected to religion, although it can be. It is about wholeness, flexibility, self-awareness, compassion, creativity, the ability to ask why, and the like. Will people someday be taking SQ tests? Not only is the concept of SQ not yet established, but, the authors point out, it's also not quantifiable. This work is important in our "spiritually dumb culture" (the authors' phrase) because it shows that IQ isn't the only measure in life. Recommended for all libraries.--John Moryl, Yeshiva Univ.
