While most of us "normal people" engage fully with the physical world we think is 'coming at us' from 'out there', Gentle says we actually emotionally create everything inside ourselves and project it out to form the reality we then experience physically. Gentle admits: "This is not a new idea, but it is one that most people do not fully comprehend."
Gentle started writing about his discoveries in 1987 with a photocopied and stapled A5 booklet called "How We Perform Negative Miracles" - later republished through the online publisher, lulu.com in 2005. In 2011, at a Starlab reunion in Barcelona, Gentle delivered a talk to a small group of blue sky researchers and scientists on "Quantum Mass Superstructures". The following year, he produced the book by the same name (hereafter referred to as QMS).
"The physical world we believe to have been created from "the Big Bang" was itself brought into being from creative consciousness." says Gentle. "This is why physicists had trouble finding the Higgs Boson (sometimes called the 'God Particle" and the particle of consciousness). Whilst the Higgs Boson appears to exist, it is not the cause of consciousness or mind - although it is possibly one of the smallest physical components of the quantum world that consciousness interfaces with." Gentle believes that science can indeed measure, discover, and create from anything physical, but draws a line at science being able to work in its usual ways with "consciousness" (beyond measuring and observing its interaction with physical beings, e.g. observation of brainwaves in relation to physical body activity). Gentle believes that in ignoring the "spiritual" side of life, science is missing out on understanding many of the underlying qualities that affect physical interactions and objects.
Gentle's comments are no doubt controversial, but he refuses to worry, adding: "science and spirituality have never been happy bedfellows. However, it is not unnatural to raise questions or see things differently. Gentle's writing provides both an introduction and overview to life on the spiritual path in a physical universe and includes reference to some scientific discoveries along the way. QMS contains a little more science than the other books, but nothing that would confuse non-scientific readers. There are no complex equations to get your head around and the ideas are presented in accessible ways with illustrations “ many in colour.
Gentle says: "The aim of my writing is to present ideas to the reader in a way that gives a workable overview to engage with a very large subject area."
If you are new to spiritual exploration, I suggest reading the 'Negative Miracles' booklet first before moving onto 'QMS' and 'More Than You Think'. However, the 'Compendium' version of 'More Than You Think' does contain all of the information in the other works mentioned. (All books are available in paperback or eBook versions).
So why 'Negative Miracles?'
"Many amazing and wonderful things happen in our daily lives, but often we dismiss them when they seem negative to us. We generally think of the miraculous as being really positive, beyond human creation and comprehension - such as spontaneous remission from a deadly illness... or 'walking on water'. However, on closer examination, many of the 'not so happy' occurrences we experience are pretty miraculous too - usually being dismissed by "bad luck" comments. It's all the same. It is only our interpretation that determines how we see things."
Gentle goes on to say: œAll my books are written to both inform and encourage further debate. They are also written to offer help to those who may be floundering in their travels through life; who wish to stop being victims of circumstance; and who want to feel more empowered to take creative action to change their world for the better. You can also use the same information to attract more abundance and better relationships!
