What is consciousness?
Where is it?
What happens to our consciousness when we die?
Science has been trying to answer these questions for centuries but, while we associate consciousness with our material brain, no one has found it there——or anywhere else! Established science, however, may provide enough clues to think about the workings of consciousness in a new way.
This first revised edition of Between Space explains how our world is made up of tiny bits of space and time ("quantized space"). These bits (quanta) exist, as only they can, within a background of "non-space;" an abstract, or immaterial reality outside of space and time . . . but not outside of Nature. The book describes how self-awareness and your mind are the result of interactions between the physicality of your brain and the abstraction of non-space by means of Simultaneity and the Observation Effect. While this little book contains scientific descriptions and speculations, it’s written in common language so that it can be enjoyed by most of us who have little or no background in science or math.
