The book is on Science and Philosophy…its actually my (or rather a quark`s) autobiography from the `Big Bang` (about 13.7 billion years ago) onwards. The past is clear … lots of books on Physics and cosmology ….no big deal. Predicting the future is complex and difficult. I am not worried about deep future (trillions of years deep), of the `Infinite mind` (explained in the book) but the immediate future…the next five centuries or so…. of the human race component of the `infinite mind` is worrying. The probability of the human civilization self destructing itself within the next few centuries is substantially high (calculations in support of this are in the book). How to prevent the collapse of human civilization is what the book is all about. It is aimed at arriving at a `Standard model of philosophy`, which is likely to be
accepted by all religions, a kind of `World view` on what is reality, the universe, life and consciousness, etc. Such a `world view`, can bring about fusion of science and religion, and thereby unite all religions, which is a prime requirement to end conflicts and wars.
SOME UNIQUE IDEAS:
Some of the concepts/ideas are absolutely unique, and could even become path breaking such as:
1) The Philosophical model based on the initial condition that the universe must make sense.
2) The concept of a Seminar held in a parallel universe shown live on television in that parallel universe, where the philosophy of the `Six words` is transmitted to the world, and creates a big impact.
3) The idea that the all intelligent `infinite mind` present everywhere in time and space could explain some of the features of Quantum Physics such as `quantum entanglement `for one.
4) The idea that this `Infinite mind` can travel to and fro in space as well as time and remains most of the time in the Stelliferrous era where stars are shining and life and consciousness is flourishing.
1) My “hook” is probably how this book being of a general purpose of discussing Science and Philosophy is actually my Autobiography.
2) That this autobiography begins at the big bang itself, it is in fact the autobiography of a quark.
3) The reading of the Chapter on the Seminar, and imagining as though you are watching a movie with your favorite stars portraying the various characters(Scientists and Philosophers).>
4)`The guessing of the Six Words and the desire to read the book once more`.
5) The Complete story of Quantum Physics and its sequential development over the years, has been placed on a platter for the benefit of the readers. The non Scientists will love it. In thirty odd pages, they will learn enough Quantum Physics to be able to understand and appreciate the philosophical impacts of the subject. This is an enormous ``HOOK``.
