The Division of Consciousness: The Secret Afterlife of the Human Psyche by Peter Novak
After the tragic death of his wife, Paul Novak threw himself into the study of the evidence for the soul's survival after the death of the body. Drawing on mythology, psychology, religion and science, as well as past-life regression and near death experiences, Novak concludes that the human psyche not only survives, but also divides at death, with the conscious mind reincarnating and the subconscious mind judging itself. This startling conclusion not only explains the differences between many of the world's great religions, but also shows that humanities' intuitions about the soul's survival has a reality separate and distinct from the mind's philosophical conflicts. The Division Of Consciousness is informative, challenging, engaging, controversial, and exceptionally well written.
