Embryos, Galaxies, and Sentient Beings: How the Universe Makes Life

Author: 
Richard Grossinger
Publisher: 
North Atlantic Books
Book Description: 

The basis for biology is embryogenesis — a method of organizing the matter responsible for the creation of life. This book brings attention to the gap between science’s description of life as random and mechanical, and the depth of human experience. Other sections discuss genetic determinism; embryonic models of healing; the Islamic critique of Western science; and theories of consciousness and language. Offering Buddhist, phenomenological, and indigenous systems of thought as alternatives to neo-Darwinism, the cultural, philosophical, political, and ecological ramifications of embryos, genes, and evolution are explored.

Reviews: 

"I am not a cabbalist nor do I have second sight, but I predict we will hear from Grossinger. This man is as large as Mann or Joyce."
—John Montgomery, author of The Kerouac We Knew

"A unique masterpiece! Richard Grossinger fathoms science with the core of the question that is rarely asked—what is the meaning of this concept, this fact?"
—David Hurtwith, Amazon.com

"This book is part of a secret project, secret even to its author. It represents a complex mode of consciousness on a subtle plane that has been working its way into the world for millennia. The author is carrying out one phase of it in a regular sense in linear time, but his inner self is doing the actual work in a timeless reverie. And this is the only way the project is going to get done. Otherwise, it would continually have to defend itself against an external voice that keeps saying, 'This is not happening; this is some bizarre aberration.' Grossinger is fighting both for and against something that won't go away. He can't drop it, and he can't complete it. It has no grand fruition, nothing to do with the New Age notion that everything is supposed to cross and become magnificent. Esoterically, it is its own reality, its own truth, its own justification."
--Ellias Lonsdale, author of Inside Star Vision
