What if our entire experience of reality were based on an assumption that could be proven false? In Roadmap to Reality, Thomas J. Elpel tests the assumption that we are a sentient (self-aware) species, and finds that the evidence suggests otherwise. Instead of acting out of conscious thought, we move through life much like automatons, reacting to events based on behaviors and beliefs that are mimicked and passed down from generation to generation without consciously evaluating why we do what we do. In short, we don't act, we react.Roadmap to Reality is like following the trail of a great mystery, sequentially following simple ideas and common information to reveal how consciousness and worldviews evolve in layers over time. This book will change your perspective of history, change the way you perceive world events today, and it will change you. This book will enable you to let go of preconceived notions about the nature of reality to discover a more holistic, more satisfying life experience.
