This is a truly radical and thought provoking book that manages to bring together mainstream science, traditional religion and esoteric knowledge. These traditions are shown to come from the same instinct in humans: an evolutionary impulse to develop an understanding of the Universe and our place within it. The book's aim is to steer us away from complex formulas, rituals and religious texts, to reveal a simple and yet complete vision of the Universe and our evolving human nature; a narrative that everyone can read and appreciate.
What came before the so called Big Bang, what led to the formation of our solar systems, galaxies, planets and life forms, and how does our present human nature relate to these things? All these questions are explored and connected together, in what is truly an enlightening read for anyone who has questioned life.
Many new ideas are proposed, that come to challenge the present frontiers of traditional science and religion. The Sun and all stars are now revealed as 'white holes', that transform potential energy (or spirit) into light, which in turn draws in, structures and builds all matter and forms within the Universe. This is a completely conscious and intelligent process, that carries our evolutionary purpose and direction. The ideal of Christ is explained as a naturally evolving part of our human nature, developing the unconditional love that works to unite our consciousness with the rest of the Universe..., and back to the mind of God, which is just one of our terms for the collective creative consciousness of the universe; alive through every form and being it has created.
The really endearing feature of this book is the simplicity with which it relates its ideas, continually drawing comparisons with our day-to-day lives. It is this common humanitarian undertone that makes it of interest to people of all cultures and from all walks of life.
