From one of our finest and most popular science writers, the best-selling author of Your Inner Fish, comes the answer to a scientific mystery story as big as the world itself: How have astronomical events that took place millions of years ago created the unique qualities of the human species? In his last book, Neil Shubin delved into the amazing connections between human anatomy—our hands, our jaws—and the structures in the fish that first took over land 375 million years ago. Now, with his trademark clarity and exuberance, he takes an even more expansive approach to the question of why we are the way we are. Starting once again with fossils, Shubin turns his gaze skyward. He shows how the entirety of the universe's 14-billion-year history can be seen in our bodies. From our very molecular composition (a result of stellar events at the origin of our solar system), he makes clear, through the working of our eyes, how the evolution of the cosmos has had profound effects on the development of human life on earth.

The Universe is not separate from us. We have the capability to realize it from within. It can be done using what we have and our own human experience. This is the core essence of the Indian spiritual and religious traditions. This book narrates how the various systems in India have evolved to make spiritual progress as a part of the normal life and beyond.
A provocative look at the purpose of life through a mixture of religion, science and personal experience! The Universe Within Us is a mixture of science, religion, and personal experience that offers a new, more truthful understanding of our place and purpose in the universe, and to the inevitable conclusion that every human being possess a spiritual nature. Offering insight into every thinking persons look at life, the author argues that the answers to the purpose of life have long been the domain of priests and clergy, and, more recently, scientists. The religious answers often leave the intellect out and defy what the rational mind can accept. The scientific answers satisfy the intellect at the expense of the heart and soul. Drawing on all resources available: from the sciences, from the world's sacred scriptures, and from personal observations and experiences, Harper offers a unique map of the universe, and an explanation of life's purpose that is truly satisfying.

World-renowned physicist Neil Turok delivers this year's Massey Lectures - a visionary look at the way the human mind can shape the future. A groundbreaking book about the future of science - and the directions in which it will take us and our world.
Interviews with scientists in the forefront of research and discovery in the workings of the mind underlie an examination of the brain's evolution, physiology, and functions and of thought processes, problem solving, and creativity
This book is about how to gain control of your health. It talks very simply about how to communicate with the atoms of your body. Your body is made up of atoms, so if you would like to be given a tool to be able to recreate who you are through the atoms of your body, this book is for you. Cancer has taken a grip on humanity, and this book will help release you from that grip. This book also talks about the aliens that are now so prevalent on our planet. Ian Welch has been communicating with aliens who are helping us to get ready for the birth of a second sun in our solar system. We are to become a binary system within the next fifteen years. This book will help you prepare for what is surely to come.
In this visionary book, Neil Turok explores the great discoveries of the past three centuries - from the classical mechanics of Newton; to the nature of light; to the bizarre world of the quantum; to the evolution of the cosmos; and even the recent findings of Higgs bosons at the Large Hadron Collider. Each new discovery has, over time, yielded new technologies that have transformed society. Now, he argues, we are on the cusp of another major change: the coming quantum revolution that will supplant our digital age. Facing this new world, Turok calls for creatively re-inventing the way advanced knowledge is developed and shared, and opening access to the vast, untapped pools of intellectual talent in the developing world. Scientific research, training, and outreach are vital to our future economy, as well as powerful forces for peaceful global progress. Elegantly written and highly inspirational, The Universe Within is, above all, about the future - of science, of society, and of ourselves.
Dr Khursheed addresses two vital questions; where in the world of scientific facts is there a place for human values and purposes?; where in a universe governed by the motions of planets and particles is there a home for justice and compassion? He begins with a critical examination of the psychology of the modern mind, and suggesting that many of the fragmentations of modern life are related to a loss of spiritual vision. A positive case for attaching more importance to the spiritual dimension of our nature is put forward.

THE FIVE AGES OF THE UNIVERSE is a riveting biography of the universe which describes for the first time five distinct eras that Adams and Laughlin themselves defined as a result of their own research. From the first gasp of inflation that caused the Big Bang, through the birth of stars, to the fading of all light, THE FIVE AGES OF THE UNIVERSE describes the death of our own sun, tremendous fiery supernovae explosions, dramatic collisions of galaxies, proton decay, the evaporation of black holes and the possibility of communications when there are no planets or stars or even black holes left. This is a voyage to a land of red giants, white dwarfs, brown dwarfs, great walls larger than galaxies and WIMPs. With daring uncharacteristic of most scientists, the authors have applied themselves to the question of what precise kind of biology could possibly exist when, say, carbon atoms no longer exist. What, ultimately, is a lifeform? Their insight into the fundamental physics that allows life is both fascinating and provocative. Readers will find all the strange colour of science fiction with none of the fiction in this awesome scientific epic.
Success is easy for those who work on knowing their potentials, the journey of exploring the universe that lies within the self is the key to success, each and everyone has the potentials for that, they only need to take those steps towards achieving things that are beyond imagination.
Excerpt from The Macrocosm and Microcosm, or the Universe Without and the Universe Within, Vol. 1 of 2: Being an Unfolding of the Plan of Creation and the Corresponding of Truths, Both in the World of Sense and the World of Soul; The Macrocosm, or the Universe Without I would invite particular attention to that feature of the present volume, by which the fundamentals of an elevated theology are pre served and established upon the very basis of those facts in science which have been thought to be rather pantheistic in their intimations.
