**Reviews**

“Luigi Maxmilian Caligiuri and Takaaki Musha have created an important resource for professors, applied researchers and students interested in superluminal phenomena. They thoroughly analyzed theoretical and experimental work published in technical literature, adding their own outstanding contribution, to give a compelling account of the existence of faster-than-light processes, QED coherence in brain microtubules and the possible onset of extraordinary capabilities of the human brain, the emergence of supercoherence in quantum vacuum and origin of mass, superluminal fields and the concept of «living» Universe, envisioned as universal brain and cosmic consciousness. This well-written authored volume provides coverage of a number of important issues and techniques with relevance to fundamental physics and cosmology, biophysics and quantum computer technology. The thematic is treated in a didactic manner, successfully covering the most relevant literature, and a useful introductory textbook on superluminal phenomena.” – **Mario J. Pinheiro, Instituto Superior Técnico, Universidade de Lisboa**

“Exploring the world beyond the velocity of light may appear science fiction, but there exists a strong argument for this to be the true reality of the universe. If its true, then we would have to re-write many of the science books, revisiting all phenomena one by one. I have read Luigi Maxmilian Caligiuri and Takaaki Musha’s book, and being in touch with the topic for several years now, I feel, the justice could not have been more than this to the concept. By resolving Einstein’s reluctance to quantum, this approach is the most likely reality of the universe and consciousness. Backed by strong mathematics, the lucid book is a pleasure for science geeks.” – **Anirban Bandyopadhyay, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)**
