Book review

The book asks the fundamental questions about the universe that many of us have wondered about, yet few have explored in-depth.

by Stephan Martin

Have you ever looked up at the night sky and wondered, “What is the universe?”

In this lively and engaging collection of interviews, Martin, a specialist in extragalactic astronomy and the study of dark matter, talks with some of today’s most innovative and cutting-edge thinkers about the nature of the universe and our relationship to it.

Scientists, mystics, indigenous elders and cultural creatives all share their unique voices on the nature of reality, the interplay of science and religion, the future of humanity, and the role of each person in a mysterious and evolving universe. Filled with rich insight, dynamic discussion and penetrating wisdom, the book asks the fundamental questions about the universe that many of us have wondered about, yet few have explored in-depth.

Questions such as: Do time, space and matter really exist? Is the universe inside us, outside us or both? Is the universe alive, conscious and intelligent? Where are we in the cosmic evolutionary picture?

A compelling journey from the farthest reaches of outer space to the innermost realms of the human heart, Cosmic Conversations will change the way you look at the universe (and yourself) forever.
