The Akasha Paradigm

Jun 5, 2012 | News, Published Books & Articles

by Ervin Laszlo (Author)

The bestselling author or SCIENCE AND THE ASKASHIC FIELD now presents the definitive theory of the Akasha Paradigm-a bold new perspective, emerging from findings at the cutting edge of physics. Rather than view the things we experience as real and the space that embeds them as empty and passive, in the Akasha concept it is the space that is real, while the things embedded in that space are secondary. Essentially, a unity paradigm, Akasha embraces, and then transcends, the old paradigms of religion as well as the paradigms of modern science providing insights into values like harmony and truth, and life-sustaining implications for humankind.

THE AKASHA PARADIGM IN SCIENCE includes contributions from Peter Jakubowski, László Gazdag, Paul A. LaViolette, David W. Thomson III and James D. Bourassa.

“The Akasha is the fundamental building block of an evolving, maturing mind. Understanding it opens the way to a higher morality and a higher consciousness.”

Deepak Chopra


“The Akasha paradigm as set forth by Ervin Laszlo tells us that life exists within a pattern that is coherent beyond our wildest dreams. Living systems seek harmony throughout their evolutionary journey. This insight uplifts our spirit and imbues our life with new meaning.”

Kingsley Dennis
Author, Researcher and Futurist

“In this brilliant book, Ervin Laszlo tells a story for the 21st century, a narrative inspired by a much earlier story from ancient India, the Akashic Records, perhaps the first “theory of everything…in his remarkable update of Bruno, Copernicus, Galileo, Darwin, Einstein and others, Ervin Laszlo, heeding Plato’s warning, that even the best account of the nature of reality is but a likely story, has now good reason to tell us, ‘the Akasha paradigm is the likeliest story we can tell today.”

“With the Akasha paradigm we are entering what might be called an Age of Reconciliation… a powerful expression of a new partnership between progressive science and progressive religion…. Laszlo’s grounding for the kind of mindset we need to gain a better future has been examined and blessed by more leading scientists than any other I know of.”
“Science has outgrown its dominant paradigm. We need a new paradigm to understand the world that emerges at the cutting-edge of the sciences. Laszlo’s Akasha paradigm fulfills this requirement. This is a revolutionary accomplishment of enormous scope and indisputable relevance.”
