What we call modern physics says something entirely new about the world and how it behaves. For many years, these theories have been accepted as the most accurate descriptions we have ever had about our world. Nevertheless, medicine has been reluctant to incorporate these ideas into itself, continuing to view the body as a clockwork mechanism, in which illness is caused by a breakdown of “parts.”

Drawing on his long experience in the practice of internal medicine and his knowledge of modern science, Dr. Dossey shows how medicine can and must be updated. Discussing the new theories of Bell, Godel, and others, he opens up startling questions for medicine: Could the brain be a hologram, in which every part contains the whole? Why have

    Good physics- but the medicine is questionable…, July 15, 2001

    Dr. Larry Dossey delivers far less than he promises in “Space, Time, and Medicine”. Instead of a revolutionary “new paradigm”, he presents us with many ideas that seem to have little to do with curing illness, and far more to do with Dr. Dossey’s spiritual views. I seriously doubt that an individual suffering from heart disease or terminally ill with cancer would be comforted by being told that they are misperceiving time! Although the idea that modifications in consciousness can change the outcome of an illness does have scientific evidence backing it (as well as plenty of anecdotal evidence, and, in my case, second-hand experience), the book fails to cover how meditation and consciousness-altering practices can be effectively applied against disease- and, in the twenty years since this book was written, little progress has been made (other than a general acceptance of yoga and meditation as a supplement to orthodox treatments).

    Despite this critique, however, Dossey does present several interesting arguments in favor of his approach, and some fascinating case studies, including one involving a psychic police officer suffering from stress-related illness, and some interesting observations involving the health of people with “type A” personalities and worldviews. Dossey demonstrates a mastery of physics uncommon among individuals outside the field, and does an excellent job of explaning the physical thought of Prigogine, Bohm, Heisenberg, Einstein, and Bohr, as well as the mathematical proofs of Kurt Godel.

    “Space, Time, and Medicine” isn’t beach reading, doesn’t present any revolutionary new data, and won’t shake the ground beneath your feet. But if you’re a physician interested in following up on potentially effective “alternative” approaches, or a layman with an interest in how the “new physics” relate to your state of being- you can do far worse than read this book.

    This review is from: Space, Time & Medicine (Paperback)

    This book brilliantly describes the essence of how various illnesses may be brought on by our misperceptions of space and time, and what we can do to change our perecpeptions and heal ourselves. As Dr. Dossey reminds us, “It is not man who is at the mercy of an external `real’ time — it is time itself which is shaped by man.” Since the effects of urgency can bring illness upon us, this book is a welcome guide to finding our way back to a healthier perception of space and time. Dossey explains how absorbing activities like fishing or needlepoint can help us kill the relentless push of time, and bring us to the healing perception of infinite space and time.
