What makes humans different from other species? For centuries, that question has reverberated among scientists, but perhaps no response has been more arresting than the one offered by Ajit Variki and the late Danny Brower. This odd pair (Variki is a physician/scientist and Brower, an insect geneticist) proposed a "Mind over Reality" theory, a radical proposal that paradoxically it is our unique ability to deny reality and our own mortality even in the face of indisputable evidence that has enabled our ascendancy. One early reader called this book "perhaps the most exciting idea in evolution that I have read since Darwin. A work of beauty and simplicity. Denial is the tale of the very thing that makes us human."
