When Nicolaus Copernicus discovered the Earth wasn’t the center of the Universe, everything changed. When Isaac Newton figured out the law of gravity from a falling apple, everything changed. When Benjamin Franklin harvested electricity from lightening and Thomas Edison made the first commercial light bulb, everything changed. Today, when quantum physicists realize our physical universe isn’t real, that it’s just a hologram, everything … wait! Nothing’s changed – yet.
"Butterflies Are Free To Fly" offers a new and radical approach to spiritual evolution based on the recent scientific experiments in quantum physics and brain research outlined in Part One. Given that the physical universe which looks and feels so real to us is actually a unique holographic projection from our own brain, the author examines various models for life and living that are very different than what we have been told and taught.
“This is the only radical thinking that you need to do,” Dr. Amit Goswami is quoted as saying. “But it is so radical, it is so difficult, because our tendency is that the world is already ‘out there,’ independent of my experience. It is not. Quantum Physics has been so clear about it.”
For example, in Part Two we are introduced to something the author calls an “Infinite I,” which is creating our unique holographic experiences. Then there is the “Human Game Model,” offering explanations all the way from why we experience pain and suffering to how we can change our reactions and responses by letting go of our judgments, beliefs, opinions, and fears. The end result, suggests the author, is peeling away all the layers of false identities that make up the “ego,” transforming and emerging from our cocoon as a “no-self.”
Part Three of the book is a series of questions and answers to offer alternative explanations consistent with these models on subjects such as money, past lives, karma, trust, and the “Earth Environment.”
This book will leave you thinking, because this book is truly radical.

I didn’t expect to like this book, but I did. The introduction is unusually indifferent about whether or not the reader accepts this as truth. “I’m a scout, not a guru or teacher. Try it. See for yourself. Find and keep what you find to be true.” That is so unusual a stance from “spiritual” writers that I lowered my shield of skepticism for further investigation. And I’m glad I did.

A book can’t be all things to all people. And, this is a book. So therefore, this book will not be everything to you. However, it has its own gestalt which is a written form of encouragement for people going through life-rocking questions about meaning.
A Case Study of the "Life is a Game" paradigm

The author mentions in the book that the likely reader for this is probably a baby-boomer that has tried many different other paradigms of thinking. His primary previous frameworks were Chiropractic and Scientology. After a recent devastating car accident, in which his ex-wife and her new husband spent a year nursing him back (and he is still recovering), he encountered a book series which he cites frequently in the book. The topic of that series is that life is a game, kind of like we are all characters in a video game or SIM’s game. The purpose of the game is for our “maker” or “controller” to experience limitations and the emotions that come with handling limitations. He backs up his theory of this game with evidence from Quantum Physics. As players,we think we are in control but really the controller is making our experiences yet we have free will to operate how we want with these experiences. So the only control we have is over our reactions to what happens, not actually what happens. He has a strong criticism of the Law of Attraction’s belief that you can create your destiny. Until we understand that this is a game, and become a third party observer of what happens to us, we will be stuck in the drudgery and pain of life. The author has definitely “drank his own kool aid” in the sense that he thinks this “one paradigm” is the only one that can bring a person peace. To his credit I feel that it is some part of human nature to believe in “one true thing.” I think other reviewers have perceived this as arrogance and maybe that is the perfect definition for believing only one way is the right way. I personally believe any paradigm that helps you cope with life- life is a game, law of attraction..etc..- is worth it. Therefore, this perspective on life might be helpful and is worth a read if you like to roll things around in your head and test new theories. I feel it is well written and easy to follow which is a merit to this author for what is likely his first stab at such a large endeavor.
could not be better!

I have never commented on any of my Amazon purchases before. But, my life has changed so dramatically in the past 6 months, which I credit to this little gem, so that I feel compelled to comment. About 6 months ago, I read this book. I was miserable, very sad and seemingly trapped in an unhappy career and home life. I felt like there was no escape. Once I got past the half way point of the book, where the author specifically tells the reader there is no going back, everything just sort of started to click in my life. I just started to think differently. By the end of the book, I made a conscious choice to be happy and change everything that was wrong in my life. It took work and I expected it to be a years long process. It wasn’t. I have started confronting fears on a regular basis and the momentum with the positive changes keeps building. There is not a day that goes by that I do not think about this book and what it has done for me. 6 months after I made my choice to be happy, I actually am. Let me be clear, I was VERY far from happy when I started this journey.I do not know the author and have no vested interest in this book, except to let other Amazon customers know that it is worth the read and it is FREE. When you first read it through, you will think that the author is insane. Then, you’ll start to see that he’s totally right about everything and changes will just start to happen. There is magic in this book. “Buy” it and read it. You won’t regret it.
That realization is so astonishing that one finds themselves delighting in the worst of life’s experiences from the past because

I give this book five stars although there is a resource out there that thrills me beyond Butterflies are Free. It is Davis’s five-part Holographic Universe series on Youtube. Davis showed me that there is never any reason for guilt or worry and provides information which adds to my previous experiences in this area and has helped me at least peek out the door of the theater and perhaps move into my cocoon.

This book was a refreshing read and it held too many coincidences in it for me not to stretch and roll with it. The great analogies and references were a part of my coincidences. From the beginning with the whole comparison of the butterfly life cycle to the human experience, to exploring holograms, science, and theology, this book kept me reading. I felt as if the author and I have been on similar paths through this life in our search to find ourselves and blend our Infinite I/God-self to our id/ego. This book was hard for him to end because his end isn’t here yet and never will be. At times there was a bit of rambling, but it was almost necessary as he uses personal narrative along with references to explain his thinking, and show us how he is experiencing this part of his journey. My conclusion is that our feeling of gratitude for all that this world offers us is our joy, our bliss. There’s a big bad/glad world out there for us to enjoy if we know that every experience is for us. Of course, that is always my conclusion because gratitude changes perspective.

Not much has been written about this perspective (or is it reality). Even so, I felt that the author was exceptionally ‘naked’ in presenting his discoveries and thoughts so far. Taken as a scout’s report of what he has been discovering and the views he’s formulating, great. I’ve been scouting, too, to use his paradigm, and relate to some of the views presented. But I have some of my own which diverge from this writer’s.
