The Eternal Law:
Ancient Greek Philosophy, Modern Physics, and Ultimate Reality

By John H. Spencer, PhD

The Eternal Law is a powerful integration of science, philosophy, and spirituality. Its roots are ancient, while its unique interdisciplinary vision is foundational to the new emerging consciousness. Is there an eternal mathematical law underpinning all of physical reality? How does it depend on higher metaphysical ideas, such as beauty, symmetry, simplicity, and unity? Is truth objective? Why were many of the key founders of modern science inevitably drawn to ancient Greek philosophy?

Spencer's extraordinary clarity helps to restore a sane vision of reality, while deepening our appreciation of what Einstein called 'the mysterious'.

John was awarded his Ph.D. from the University of Liverpool, specializing in the Philosophical Foundations of Quantum Physics. John is a co-founder of the pioneering publishing company Param Media. He is also working to revitalize and innovate the essence of the ancient mystery schools, opening new possibilities for unique expression in modern life.

He is the multiple award-winning author of The Eternal Law: Ancient Greek Philosophy, Modern Physics, and Ultimate Reality, co-author of The Mystic Light: Opening to the Guidance of Divine Messages, contributing co-editor of The Beacon of Mind: Reason and Intuition in the Ancient and Modern World, and contributor to various publications, including Super Synchronicity: Where Science and Spirit, and Expanding Science: Visions Of A Post-materialist Paradigm. John also wrote the Foreword to Our Journey To Corporate Sanity: Transformational Stories From The Frontiers Of 21st Century Leadership
