The Philosophy of the Universe and the Dimensions of the Multiverse by Aaron Joseph Olivier is a scientific and spiritual study. It introduces and proposes the author’s theory regarding the concepts that make up our known universe. His approach redefines our universe and explains that the five dimensions cannot exist without each other. One supports the next, and so on.

The author presents his extensive research into nature, religion, philosophy, mathematics, and geometry. He takes readers on a journey that shows how he learned about mankind and the ancient systems of belief spanning throughout history to the current day.

The first part of Olivier’s hypothesis is that all religions come from the same source. I’m not sure how that would resonate with many believers of different faiths. I was skeptical of that thought. Mainly because there are existing religions that live by the concept of “convert or die.” This fact seems to make that theory untenable at best. That said, there are some aspects of this book that inform and educate. I enjoyed those sections.

What I liked most about this book is that it is well researched and presented in the format of a scientific study. The elements of hypothesis, theory, and conclusion help readers understand that the author is making suggestions for philosophies and thoughts without declaring any set rules or absolutes.

I appreciated the studies that presented simple examples between so many religions. They ranged from examples such as pagan and Norse. Many others were featured that aligned so closely that they seemed to support some part of the author’s theory that they originated from a common source. The evidence of history, when quoted from multiple sources, lends weight to any argument. This writing style made the book more interesting and added authenticity that might have been missing otherwise.

All in all, this is an informative book. While I cannot say that I ascribe to all of its ideas or theories, I came away from this book with a newfound perspective of the author’s views and how he felt they might affect mankind. The chapters that shared his insights regarding the effects of giving up caffeine and fasting were fascinating. I enjoyed learning about the chakras of the body and how they connect with meditation. The sacred geometry and dimensional physics studies were interesting but slightly confusing. The illustrations helped a little with that. Although the book speaks about sacred sexuality, there no sex scenes of any kind and no profanity.

I found only a few minor errors in the book, so it is exceptionally edited. I recommend it to readers who enjoy scientific and religious theory backed up with research and references. Despite the all-inclusive concepts offered herein, I have to warn that there are some ideas in this work that religious readers may find offensive. The idea that all religions are one may bother some readers, and if that is the case, they may need to avoid this book. Some of the author’s theories seem to bulldoze their way through faiths in this manner. For that reason, I am rating this book with 3 out of 4 stars.

While I like the concept, I find myself hesitant to read this book because of how it is presented as a scientific study. I think I won't enjoy it as much because of that. Nonetheless, thanks for the review!

I've always been fascinated by the idea that all religions could be one (ever since I read The Chronicles of Narnia as a child), so I think this would be interesting in that aspect. I also appreciate a book that introduces new theories with research to back it up that could potentially improve my life. Thank you for your review!
