Overview

This book reads the theory of evolution through the roots of words and the codes set up by relations between roots and key-words. Language was historically created in the course of the work dynamic. Today language has a double function. It not only supplies us with our everyday vocabulary and grammar. It also conceals a language within a language, offering clues as to what it means to be human. This book suggests that the evidence of this “language within language” shows that not only are we related to the great apes biologically as Darwin established, but that culturally we are related to the insects, and specifically to the metamorphic insects. It is this connection that is crucial And defining. Alfred Russel Wallace, co-founder of the Theory of Evolution, sensed some spiritual and artistic range to human experience not explained by Darwin's central theory. They Stared at the Sun shows how the structures in major artistic works fuse with the development of creatures that undergo radical metamorphosis. They also determine the unique place of humans in the quantum cosmos.
