What is the origin of the Universe? How is the material world built? What is this life blooming in the cosmos? What is the reason for being? This book addresses the major issues of Metaphysics from a holistic perspective, trying to harmonize the different world views that arise from the different currents of thought.
The book begins by reviewing the exciting body of knowledge derived from Physics, Cosmology and Biology among other branches of Science. It first examines this Universe that harbors the Life, focusing on the pillars that underpin its fabric: the space, the time and the matter. Then, it goes on exploring the wonders of life, with its complexity and amazing capabilities to think, and to feel.
Reflecting on the ontological meaning and the role of the different ingredients that make up reality, the book slides into that place where the border between objectivity and subjectivity is blurred. At that point, the story takes a twist to venture into the domains of the Perennial Philosophy, meeting place of the great spiritual traditions whose teachers invite to seek for the answers by looking inwards, through the meditative introspection.
