    I am a Classicist trained in the language of the Ancient Greeks;

    I am a Classicist trained in the language of the Ancient Greeks; books like Dante's Inferno, the works of Galileo Galilei, as well as the revolutionary ideas of Giordano Bruno, Euclid, Archimides, Pythagoras, and countless others have allowed me to develop a sense of human culture unlike many who have preceded me. However, explaining how I understand the world has never been an easy thing. Looking at how our brain works, its infrastructure and processes, through the mind of Giulio Tononi, is as enlightening as the many years that has brought about my understanding of human behavior. Human relatedness is quite unlike anything we have ever understood, and to know that our brain works in similar ways is as fascinating as discovering, for the first time, the inner-workings of that mirror image we first identify at our tender 18 months.
    I can compare this book with Dante's Inferno, from which Prof. Tononi so often quotes, in so many ways that I can only think it will have the brightest of futures. Individuals, some 500 years from now, will wonder how this one book became the cannon on understanding the complexities of human conscience. "Phi" is beautifully written, masterfully crafted, and imaginatively expressed. We must not ignore this work, a new shape of consciousness that so poignantly describes the way in which we, as humans, develop consciousness.
