Overview

One Cosmos under God is an extraordinary book that takes the reader on an intellectual and spiritual journey through the whole of creation. It dares to venture where language cannot go, into the "mind of God" prior to the creation, through to the "mind of the saint" who transcends the culturally conditioned ego, escapes history, and merges with the divine mind.

This book is intended to be both serious and entertaining, like an intellectual amusement park ride through the whole of creation. It operates under the premise that if God exists, He has a very sophisticated sense of humor, and the book makes many important points in an ironic or punning way, including in the opening "creation story" and the closing "Cosmobliteration" of language into mystical oneness.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"It is as if this sly author infiltrated the motherboard of God's computer and, with ecstatic voyeuristic glee, gazed upon the master plan for creation. This work is a daring, daunting, juggling act of so many disciplines that it should be a lofty sequel to DaVinci's Code. The footnotes alone are worth the read....The context is extraordinary. There is union after union of eastern and western thought in terms of cosmology, religion, philosophy, psychoanalysis, biology, and lots more." —James S. Grotstein, Professor of Psychiatry, UCLA School of Medicine, author of Who is the Dreamer Who Dreams the Dream?

"A stimulating, literate, and highly enjoyable investigation of the most important philosophic issue of our time: how the life of the mind relates to the life of the universe." —Richard Smoley, author of Inner Christianity: A Guide to the Esoteric Tradition and former editor of Gnosis

What People are saying about this

James S. Grotstein
"It is as if this sly author infiltrated the motherboard of God’s computer and, with ecstatic voyeuristic glee, gazed upon the master plan for creation. This work is a daring, daunting, juggling act of so many disciplines that it should be a lofty sequel to DaVinci’s Code. The footnotes alone are worth the read. [The author] deliberately chose Finnegans Wake for the style of his presentation because [it] is so cosmic in its sweep, so eternal in its landscape, and so rife with rich puns. ...James Joyce would have loved this work.The context is extraordinary. There is union after union of eastern and western thought in terms of cosmology, religion, philosophy, psychoanalysis, biology, and lots more."

Allan Combs
"What a delight! Godwin gives us the psychedelic flair of Robert Anton Wilson, percolated with the cosmic vision of Olaf Stapledon. Welcome back to the Star Maker."
author of The Radiance of Being, teaches at the University of North Carolina, Asheville, and The Saybrook Institute in San Francisco
