True to its title, this book may be compact-but it carries vast concepts. Each chapter focuses on one of seven areas: the universe, the mind, time, life, death, the body, meditation, and Zen.
Author Alex Kaliberda begins by using the universe as an example, showing how our five senses perceive it and present it to us. Our minds connect the dots, applying information we have gathered throughout our lives-but because of this personal slant, how we relate to the universe and how accurate our thinking is may be questionable.
While the book presents mathematics as the language of the universe, readers are spared a battle with unapproachably complex equations and formulas. Rather, through revealing examples and clear descriptions, math and science are illustrated to be excellent connectors between the abstract and the measurable.
Touching on the subjective realities of each individual's life journey and the inconsequential, everyday questions we ask those around us-even the admissions by quantum physicists that experiment outcomes can differ depending on the observer-The Little Book on Everything offers you the means to embark on a life-changing analysis of your thought processes and long-held beliefs-and the achievement of self-awareness.
