What this book is about?
Ever wonder what it is that keeps holding you back?
Deep within the constructs of your brain, a superimposed identity has been formed. This "glitch", embedded in your neural network through the evolution of brain development, is an acquired Persona which perpetuates itself by constantly creating problems and limitations in your life. The Personal thinks for you, acts for you, and even learns for you, but it is NOT the real YOU! In this revolutionary book, you will discover which of the six major types of Personas you have unwittingly acquired, and you will learn how to free yourself from the power it has over you. Like a remedy for an illness,
The Evolutionary Glitch serves as a guide to confronting and rising above the root of your problems. Drawing on ancient wisdom as well as the latest discoveries in neurobiology and quantum physics, The Evolutionary Glitch will radically change the way you see yourself and the world around you.
Learn the skills you need to...
If you are ready to discover what is hidden behind the mask of your Personal, free yourself from your problems, and live your life with purpose and direction, The Evolutionary Glitch could be the most important book you've ever read.
What we think about it?
Reading this book I found myself thinking many times thinking about Ken Wilber's books. Like Wilber, Garoli's unique work is insightful, complex, inspiring and embedding Eastern and Western philosophy. Like Wilber's work, this book is taking you to an interesting journey of self-exploration that you know where it starts and you have no idea where it will end.
This book, at least for me, was something that should be consumed in small pieces to get the most out of it. I read sentences such as "While your Persona lies strong, your deductive capabilities are too biased and cannot function as a reliable source of observation" and need to put the book aside for a little while and digest what I just read. If I compare it to food, this is by no means a light snack or a quick lunch, but more of a long and gratifying French-style dinner.
Garoli presents in this book an holistic approach based on physics, philosophy, neurobiology and physiology uncovering the 'glitch' in our nervous system and providing a detailed road map to get ourselves better and get rid of these flaws.
If you're willing to dig deeper into yourself and explore the roots of your own persona, break down familiar patterns and find ways it seems we already lost to natural well being, this book is for you. It doesn't have in it the secret for happy life or some vague promise to fix all your problems in 12 simple steps, but it does include an invitation to a unique journey inside your own mind and body that can result in beneficial self-discoveries.
Last but not least, this book is printed on FSC-certified paper!
