Overview

Have you ever looked up at the night sky and wondered "What is the universe?" In this lively and engaging collection of interviews, astronomer Stephan Martin talks with some of today-s most innovative and cutting-edge thinkers on the nature of the universe and our relationship to it. Scientists, mystics, indigenous elders, and cultural creatives all share their unique voices on the nature of reality, the interplay of science and religion, the future of humanity, and the role of each person in a mysterious and evolving universe. Filled with rich insight, dynamic discussion, and penetrating wisdom, Cosmic Conversations asks the fundamental questions about the universe many of us have wondered about, yet few have explored in-depth, questions such as: "• Do time, space, and matter really exist? "• Can the universe be inside us, outside us, or both? "• Is the universe alive, conscious, and intelligent? "• Where are we in the cosmic evolutionary picture? A compelling journey from the farthest reaches of outer space to the innermost realms of the human heart, Cosmic Conversations will change the way you look at the universe (and yourself) forever.

    Interesting but...

    It might be my background, it might be an issue of generality, but for me Stephan's book started well but then the later sections disappointed me. Perhaps my preference for more concrete ideas about nature and the cosmos interfere with my appreciation of the softer ideas.
    Like most reviews I can only speak to how I liked the book...its good, not brilliant. You might like it more :-)
