The Tao of Physics: An Exploration of the Parallels between Modern Physics and Eastern Mysticism: An Exploration of the Parallels Between Modern Physics and Eastern Mysticism: 25th Anniversary Edition: Amazon.co.uk: Fritjof Capra: Books

The Tao of Physics: An Exploration of the Parallels between Modern Physics and Eastern Mysticism: An Exploration of the Parallels Between Modern Physics and Eastern Mysticism: 25th Anniversary Edition: Amazon.co.uk: Fritjof Capra: Books.  Want to read this.  Do want to make sure that the previous insights, from Aristotle about habits/habituation and the Talmud about seeing things not they way they are but the way we are, are upheld by Capra.  All we encounter is our experience.  All we examine is our experience.  Emerging middles emerge inchoate our of examination of our experience, like the primary pairs of species-indistinct leaves emerging on a seedling stem, that produce a means of harvesting light, and extra carbon additional to the primary roots, that then produce species-specific-shaped leaves.  Emergent middles seem to provide new insights, that afterwards increasingly resemble already emerged understandings, albeit perhaps at different scopes and scales, like fractals.  “Of the making of many books there is no end; much study is a weariness to the flesh” according to Ecclesiastes.  ‘Too much meaning’ Parkin wrote in his F**k It book; ‘too much mattering’.
