This fascinating book by a New Zealand molecular biologist examines mankind's fear of death on both a personal level and a cosmic scale. Tackling the subject with a scientist's knowledge, he reveals unexpected crossovers between ancient myth, modern religion, and up-to-the-minute scientific theory.
He asks us to reconsider our perception that time flows, irrevocably and inexorably, from the future into the past, arguing that the division of time into past, present, and future is itself the greatest flaw in human consciousness. Using the theory of relativity and quantum mechanics, he shows that the cutting edge of science contradicts the perception of one-dimensional time.
Drawing on an astounding breadth of reading, he weaves together strands from literature and religion, physics, anthropology, cosmology, and mythology to offer a complete reevaluation of human consciousness and previously unthought-of possibilities for the nature of immortality.
