The Physiology of Consciousness
By Robert Keith Wallace, Ph.D.
Softcover, 311 pages
Published in 1993Dr. Wallace assesses the current health care crisis in the United States, including the rise of stress-related disease, and the side-effects and spiraling costs of modern medicine. These problems will only worsen, Dr. Wallace points out, if addressed merely by making administrative changes in the health care system. Dr. Wallace presents a new paradigm based on the Maharishi Vedic Science program: the basis and source of the manifest “physiology of matter” is an unmanifest “physiology of consciousness.” Only by understanding and directly experiencing this all-pervading level of abstract intelligence can we create true health. Dr. Wallace conducted the original research on the Transcendental Meditation program and is the founding president of Maharishi University of Management (formerly Maharishi International University), where he currently is executive vice president, and chairman of the Department of Physiological and Biological Sciences.
