Two books that could transform
your understanding of reality:
Breath of the Cosmos
The physics of material reality as never before 
in beautiful pictures and flowing poetry.
Tapestry of Light
A radically new, but ages old,
perspective on the nature of material reality.
A layman's view of
the scientific issues.
In these books
Dr Grahame Blackwell presents, in two quite different
styles, his findings from ten years of scientific investigation and careful
mathematical analysis.
(No
maths in either book.)

"I read 'Tapestry of Light' on my flight to
Washington, D.C. – I was stunned!
I proceeded to read 'Breath of the Cosmos'
the day after I got back.
'Tapestry' deserves a Nobel prize in
physics and 'Breath' a Nobel prize in literature.
Your energy flow paradigm makes total sense to me. As you
show, it explains all of Einstein's findings but also explains the arrow
of time.
A truly seminal book!"
Lloyd Morgan, Director, Central
Brain
Tumor
Registry of the United States.

"A friend lent me your book 'Breath of the Cosmos'.
It takes my breath away."
P.H., Complementary Therapist..

"I
very much enjoyed your book
'Tapestry of Light' ."
H.S.,
Artist.

"I have greatly
enjoyed reading and absorbing the content of 'Breath of the Cosmos'.
Your use of language, style and format shows a keen perception of the
joy of communication, the love of poetry and the gift of presentation.
I shall treasure this
book the more because I have made notes on the text throughout as I have
discovered and, I suspect, will continue to so do, each new delight.
Do not stop writing
now. You have many special gifts and there are many, many people who
will soon be waiting for more of your work."
Shirley Day,
English teacher (retired), Kent. 
Of a multimedia presentation:
"I
just want to say a BIG, BIG thank you for your magnificent 'performance'
last night!
It was truly inspirational and a wonderful kick off to the whole
evening. You are definitely a communicator!"
Sue Minns.,
Author

"I thought your talk at the London College of
Spirituality 2012 Forum was absolutely fantastic – interesting, funny,
massively informative and you made some complex science very accessible.
Your books have been on my tobuy list since then, how wonderful that
they are now on their way. I really look forward to reading them."
Dee Apolline, The Big Chi,
London. 
On a presentation on 'Breath'
"We have not heard the relationship between
spiritual perception and science described so beautifully before as it
was by you – two sides of the coin. Thank you for a wonderful evening."
Cecilia Bingham, Devon.

"The perfect balance
of new science, humour & helpful info that people can relate to in their
lives", "I
am impressed! I found it easy to read, not boring at all! very
interesting and have subscribed for more!", "clear and
precise, easy to read and acutely
interesting. I like the userfriendly presentation. I have

Maths for 'Behind the Tapestry: The Threads Revealed'
This page summarises the concepts you need to
be happy with if you want to understand the supporting maths presented in
'Behind the Tapestry'. No guarantees are offered, but if you can follow
these (or alternatively you're prepared to take them on trust) then it's
unlikely you'll meet anything in the book that will throw you. You are
reminded of all of these in the text of the book.
The main question is: are you frightened by
algebra? If you are then this book is not for you. If you're not,
then pretty well everything you need to know is included in the text – almost
nothing is assumed except that you're willing to give it a go.
1. 
Pythagoras' Theorem 
a^{2}
= b^{2}
+ c^{2}
, where a is the hypotenuse (longest side) of a right angled triangle and b
& c are the other two sides. 
2. 
sin^{2} x + cos^{2}
x = 1
and
tan x = sin x / cos x 
where x is any angle.
This follows directly from Pythagoras' Theorem and the definitions of sine x
(opposite/hypotenuse) and cosine x
(adjacent/hypotenuse).
This follows directly from the
definition of tangent x (opposite/adjacent). 
3. 
Cosine Rule 
a^{2}
= b^{2}
+ c^{2}
– 2bc cos A ,
where a, b and c are the three sides of any triangle and A is the angle in
the triangle opposite side a. (Pythagoras' Theorem is a special case
of this, where angle A is 90 degrees and so cos A = 0  so the last
term disappears.) 
4. 
Cancelling 
You need to understand cancelling of algebraic (letter) terms on the top and
bottom of an algebraic fraction, including brackets. 
5. 
Approximation 
If
c is very big compared to v and w, then (c^{2
}
– w^{2})/(c^{2
}
– v^{2})
is approximately equal to c^{2}/c^{2},
which is equal to 1. 
6. 
speed, time, distance 
speed = distance/time, distance = speed x
time, time = distance/speed 
7. 
sine of (x
– y) 
sin (x – y) = sin x cos y – sin y cos x 
8. 
Solution of a quadratic
equation 
You need to know the formula for
the solution of a quadratic equation (loads of entries for it on Google)  or be
prepared take the result on trust. 
9. 
Indices 
You need to
know that power
½ is the same as a square root and that a power on the bottom half
(denominator) of a fraction is the same as a negative power. That's
all shown in detail in the book. Also that (for example) z^{3/2}
= z^{1½}
= z
x
sqrt(z) 
10. 
Differentiation 
There is ONE
differentiation in this book. Another 'differentiation' consists of
simply removing the integral sign from an integration  as differentiation
is just the opposite of integration (so that doesn't need to be done
either).
The ONE differentiation is to
find the differential (d/dv) of:
E_{0
}
/ (1
– v^{2}/c^{2})^{½}
(Where E_{0} is a constant anyway, so that stays as it is)
The book goes through it step by step, showing the parts that make up the
result (including the differential of the term in the bracket).
There is also one use of the 'chain rule'. That says, for example,
that:
d/dt of (something) is the
same as dx/dt x d/dx of (something).
This is effectively the opposite of cancelling  notice that the two dx's
could be cancelled, getting us back to d/dt. 
11. 
Integration 
There is NO integration needed in this book. The concept of
integration is used (and very thoroughly explained)  but ALL the integrals
cancel or reduce to a trivially simple and very obvious result. 
12. 
Factorising 
You need to be able to see how
common factors (numbers and letters) are taken outside a bracket for a
collection of terms. 
In addition the equation of an ellipse is used,
in terms of sines and cosines. That's all laid out very clearly in the
text and you don't need to have any previous knowledge on that subject in order
to understand it thoroughly.
