Read an Excerpt

Into this Mysterious universe we are born, with no apparent set of instructions, no maps or equations, no signs or guideposts, nothing but our equally unfathomable instincts, intuitions, and reasoning abilities to tell us where we came from, why we are here and what we are supposed to do. What we do possess - perhaps the key to our survival as a species - is an almost unquenchable need to know. A human being comes into this world with passionate sense of wonder and inquisitiveness and an equally an powerful need for self expression. Yet, somehow, these seemingly indelible primal imperatives become eroded, as a rule, after only a few years' exposure to modern "reality" and contemporary educational methods.
