Book review: The Reality Bible

by Ash Vaz 

★★★

Too much! Far too much is covered in this book to provide even a basic grasp of the concepts presented. Ash’s intent seems to be not to explain, but to mystify and bewilder, as he carries us on a journey into the science of the world around us … and of worlds far away. Ash isn’t a scientist, he is a “metaphysics thinker and phenomenologist” who isn’t shy about contradicting scientific theory. There was no big bang; a steady-state universe is more consistent with the facts. Relativity is unhelpful as a theory because light dwindles over distances. Forget about e=mc2. The moon doesn’t cause tides. Gravitational forces don’t exist (at least not as expected) because the earth doesn’t crash into the sun.

Instead, all is explained by forms of energy. Other planets can produce biological cells, but only earth produces multi-cellular life, and this is important … we are the key. Everything exists because we can think. Through our thoughts, we conceptualize God, energy, everything.

The book’s most frustrating flaw is its difficult readability. Sentences read like clusters of big words with few relative pronouns.  “Astronomy informs star centers with cores of helium atoms exhaust protons over billion years.” “The postulated colossal universe appearing from a point, terminating everything inside, and simultaneously abetting the creation of existences outside is preposterous thinking.” You’ll get used to the writing style about the time the book ends.

  1. Ouch. It’s like Google Translate crashed into a thesaurus.
