This book is about looking at life analytically and formulating a sense of purpose by understanding the unknown, seeing the invisible, and anticipating the unexpected. These are always new and often unprecedented challenges. They are the result of continuous, invisible change on which life is designed. It is not a story about the journey of a particular individual. It is not about what happens when things go wrong. It is not about how to make things go right. And it is not about an academic examination of change as a technical process. Rather, it is about you – how to appreciate and feel comfortable in the new, the unfamiliar, so you feel balanced by expanding your insights to embrace a greater variety of conditions. There are countless stories about survival and the courageous actions of an individual making things right that cannot be duplicated in real life because the circumstances were extreme, or because the response was unique. This examination is not about that type of experience.
It elaborates, instead, on the premise that the physical reality is based on the incessant activity of sub-microscopic elements so change is the norm rather than the occasional stumbling block to idealistic conditions, and that the human experience is not to survive it but to be stimulated mentally by its machinations. It attempts to show how to make this a natural and fulfilling exercise.
The only way you can satisfy your personal objective of developing that conscious insight and fulfillment and equip yourself to manage life's stresses composedly is to use your creativity. That means discovering your limits, challenging yourself beyond them, and applying your personally developed and unique perspective to the management of your life. This is what this book attempts to show you.
