Overview

Why does life seem to be so unfair? Or is it? Is there a God? And if there is a God, how come God can be so unjust, and why do bad things happen to good people?
Religious people and philosophers have tried to answer these questions about life in the past using the metaphors of their day and age, as well as of their professions. Old metaphor might have resonated with people back then and might still make sense to some today, but that is leaving out a multitude of others who are finding it difficult to relate to this language; especially the young.
This book explains how things in life work using the language and the metaphors of mathematics, chemistry and physics that everybody has been acquiring in school.
Here are some of the answers to how things work in life:
• The word God is a metaphor. God is "everything," and God is fair.
• The world is "thoughts," but that does not mean that you just sit there and think about becoming great to achieve greatness the way it's been touted in the book titled "The Secret" by Rhonda Byrne! No! That's wrong! And it's not how the equation works!
• Good and bad are relative quantities.
• War is necessary to keep the balance of power between good and bad, but it doesn't have to result in bloodshed.
• Sex is a commodity and it has a sublime value that has to be implemented.
• Love is a binding force. Lust and Dependency belong on the opposite ends of the spectrum of love.
• Like does not belong on the spectrum of love.
• We do have a choice, and our choice does make a difference.
• Our reaction is the only variable that can change every equation in our life.
• There are different degrees of only two religions in the world: Conservative and Liberal.

About the Author

Dr. Basimah Khulusi M.D. is a single mother, a rehabilitation physician and an inventor. She is a Lebanese American who came from the Mideast to the Midwest thirty years ago, spending seven years in Egypt, North Africa on the way. As a teenager, Dr. Khulusi started noticing patterns of behavior dictating events and happenings. When in college, she wrote about some of her observations for the American University of Beirut's publication, and received high acclaim. Dr. Khulusi has always wanted to be a writer, but the fifteen years of civil war in Lebanon steered her path in another direction. She has lived through, and witnessed a lot of heartache and pain and suffering. Having lived in three different continents and been exposed to different cultures from around the world, she couldn't help but notice the universality of the patterns dictating human behaviors. She kept trying to figure out the mechanism of action of things hoping that might help in fixing them. She found the answers in mathematics, chemistry and physics, and decided to fulfill what has been her mission all along: to write a book explaining her findings to everybody. Here's hoping for a better life for all.
