Reviewed by Joel R. Dennstedt for Readers' Favorite

“Mind is not a product of the physical, rather the physical is a product of the Mind.” An assertion representing a rather large paradigm shift in itself, this conclusion reached by Richard Botelho in his brilliant treatise, The Full Extent – An Inquiry into Reality and Destiny, is not the Omega point sought by his meticulously researched and developed philosophical/scientific reasoning, but the absolutely fundamental cornerstone of a new Megatheory for reality, being, and ultimate destiny. Primacy of Consciousness – not a novel contention (often presented in the deepest wisdom traditions) but one never before so grounded in cutting-edge scientific observation and irrefutable experimentation - is Botelho’s starting point for a rigorously candid and rational exposition of logical inferences necessitated by this simple (but to many, mind-blowing) presumption. The work itself may not present an entirely unfamiliar paradigm, but it certainly offers a much more comprehensive, intelligent, and superior understanding of our spiritually designed, guided, and managed Universal Destiny.

The Full Extent by Richard Botelho is academically impeccable in its presentation, organization, summarization, and attributions to historical predecessors. Fortunately for the wide range of readers drawn to such speculations, and those of us sure to be impacted by any overt societal acceptance of them, Botelho’s writing and reasoning both are precisely clear and fairly easily comprehended. Scientific professionals and spiritually grounded philosophers will likely provide their own profound depths to the inferences drawn here, and Botelho commendably allows for such enhancements, but his work is fully drawn in itself and omits no necessary element for his conclusive and ultimately transformative paradigm of being. A groundbreaking and profoundly intelligent work.
