Stephen Pirie's book "The Dynamics of Gender and Life: Timeless Principles of Quantum, Fractal and Natural Phenomena, and Human Social Dynamics" is now published and available at The Byron Book Room Collective, in Fletcher Street, Byron Bay.
I enjoyed reading Stephen's book and found his perspective refreshing and revealing on how to achieve deeper understanding of the masculine and feminine. His explanations using quantum physics and the butterfly diagrams made compelling reading.
From everyday examples of behaviors to exploring the metaphysical, Stephen clearly defines the part that each polarity plays and elucidates their importance in the whole continuum. This is an important issue as dominance of one over the other leads to an imbalance and disharmony. What the world so deeply needs now is the balance of the feminine and masculine and the recognition of diversity in Unity.
The Dynamics of Gender and Life. Just consider the title; it is almost grandiose in its scope, yet the book itself does not disappoint. Stephen Pirie has delineated a whole new paradigm for reality in 152 pages. That in itself is a remarkable achievement.
My experience of reading Dynamics included perceiving a dramatic structure. In the first two sections Stephen repeatedly drew aside curtain after curtain to reveal unexpected wonders. This created a feeling of anticipation as well as suspense. I was eager to read the next page, which always led to further discoveries. I had fun.
Then, in section 3, Stephen began "fleshing out" what had been revealed in the preceding sections. This did not reach the same level of expectation as did the first two sections, but it was necessary for fuller comprehension. I liked his generalized summaries of what it all meant as I went along, e.g., "We, and each part within creation, are. . . an active pivot-point, a door-way, an active, creative portal through which the creative potential and power of the quantum vacuum, the implicate order, the ground of being, flows and creates. We are the delivery vehicles and directors of where and how that energy is congealed into actuality." Beautifully expressed.
These occasional "boosts" in his explication keeps the reader in touch with the overall context of what he is saying and sustains an emotional connection with the content.
All in all, a wonderful piece of work, which I earnestly hope will reach a vast multitude of readers because, in all sincerity, they sure as hell need it.
I have known Stephen and followed his work for decades. Initially it centered on Quantum Theory and its implications on everyday life. As his understanding evolved, it has come to include other disciplines, e.g. Neuroscience, in a coherent framework elucidating the nature of life and the nature of decision-making process.
The Dynamics of Gender and Life is a thoroughly enjoyable read. I recommend it to anyone with inquisitive mind and anyone wishing to expand their understanding of our world.
