The best book on consciousness and what dolphins and wise humans know about it

The Books I Picked & Why

Souls in the Sea: Dolphins, Whales, and Human Destiny

By Scott Taylor

Souls in the Sea: Dolphins, Whales, and Human Destiny

Why this book?

The subhead of this wonderful book is Dolphins, Whales, and Human Destiny. It covers the extensive history of respect for dolphin wisdom from 30,000 years ago in Australia, through ancient Greece, to their seeming withdrawal from our awareness 1,000 years ago. Dolphins have reappeared now, when we need their wisdom most. Taylor writes of their being the other self-aware, intelligent life we have been searching the Universe for, and about “dolphin embassies,” where we can meet as equals, already begun at their behest.

Our Dolphin Ancestors: Keepers of Lost Knowledge and Healing Wisdom

By Frank Joseph

Our Dolphin Ancestors: Keepers of Lost Knowledge and Healing Wisdom

Why this book?

The title doesn’t do justice to how stunning the information within it is, the very careful and thoughtful research, the documentation of our historical connection with cetaceans. Most impressive are the thorough descriptions of their brains, minds, communication skills well beyond our ability to even register and understand. Their echolocation, their ability to sense electrical signals from heartbeats, their multidimensional vocalization, and connected visual and aural brain areas allows them to send “sonic pictures” to each other, receiving “at least ten times more through the sense organs than we can,” is just for starters. Read this book and be amazed…and humbled!

Last Song of the Whales

By Four Arrows

Last Song of the Whales

Why this book?

It is a fiction based on facts about whales and about what Four Arrows believes they are trying to tell us regarding the pollution of the Oceans that threatens us all. A whale captures a marine biologist and his encounter, feeling almost biblical but very current, reveals their important message to humanity. In this very dramatic story, you’ll also find an ecological treatise, and a call to action so needed at this time.

One Mind: How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why It Matters

By Larry Dossey

One Mind: How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why It Matters

Why this book?

The title tells it all. Dr. Dossey has been a leader in the field of universal consciousness, beyond our individual conscious and unconscious minds. His latest book combines concepts from history’s profound scientists and thinkers, compelling contemporary cases studies, and ways to participate in collective awareness. It is all documented with great clarity and credibility. When we recognize that we are not alone, but all connected in the One Mind, we may develop greater empathy for all living beings and see how our knowing that connection can change the world for the better.

The Holographic Universe: The Revolutionary Theory of Reality

By Michael Talbot

The Holographic Universe: The Revolutionary Theory of Reality

Why this book?

To me, this is the best book ever written on the subject of the Universe as a hologram. Berkeley Physicist David Bohm, who contributed to the study of Quantum Theory, and neuroscientist Karl Primbram, emeritus professor of psychology and psychiatry at Stanford University originally offered this explanation of our brains and our world, beyond our limited view through our three-dimensional senses. It explains magic, miracles, the inexplicable. You will be astounded and fascinated by the evidence of this brilliant theory, written lucidly, clearly, scientifically, and involvingly.
