I get the impression that Needleman's "levels of reality" are just the different "realities" perceived at David R. Hawkins' different "levels of consciousness", nothing else. Quite simple. It is just another wording of the same thing. Nick_A, you should read D.R.Hawkins. Begin with "Power vs Force". Warning: if you don't like or are skeptic about applied kinesiology, then just skip this in your minde and take all the rest.
