NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Deepak Chopra joins forces with leading physicist Menas Kafatos to explore some of the most important and baffling questions about our place in the world. "A riveting and absolutely fascinating adventure that will blow your mind wide open!" —Dr. Rudolph E. Tanzi What happens when modern science reaches a crucial turning point that challenges everything we know about reality? In this brilliant, timely, and practical work, Chopra and Kafatos tell us that we've reached just such a point. In the coming era, the universe will be completely redefined as a "human universe" radically unlike the cold, empty void where human life is barely a speck in the cosmos. You Are the Universe literally means what it says--each of us is a co-creator of reality extending to the vastest reaches of time and space. This seemingly impossible proposition follows from the current state of science, where outside the public eye, some key mysteries cannot be solved, even though they are the very issues that define reality itself: • What Came Before the Big Bang? • Why Does the Universe Fit Together So Perfectly? • Where Did Time Come From? • What Is the Universe Made Of? • Is the Quantum World Linked to Everyday Life? • Do We Live in a Conscious Universe? • How Did Life First Begin? “The shift into a new paradigm is happening,” the authors write. “The answers offered in this book are not our invention or eccentric flights of fancy. All of us live in a participatory universe. Once you decide that you want to participate fully with mind, body, and soul, the paradigm shift becomes personal. The reality you inhabit will be yours either to embrace or to change.” What these two great minds offer is a bold, new understanding of who we are and how we can transform the world for the better while reaching our greatest potential.
The universe shows very little interest in living systems. We know this because we have seen that most places in the universe are generally quite inhospitable to
biological life. Being a living thing makes you a member of a tiny minority in this ...

"Who You Are is a book about the science of connectedness, on a grand scale. The book describes scientific experiments in neuroscience, psychology, cognitive science, archeology and ecology, to convince the reader of the following thesis: The definition of your 'self', and of your 'mind', should be expanded to include not just your brain and not just your body, but also other people and things around you. The scientific findings marshaled to make this case will literally expand the reader's mind, incrementally one chapter at a time"--

The New York Times bestselling tour of the cosmos from three of today's leading astrophysicists Welcome to the Universe is a personal guided tour of the cosmos by three of today's leading astrophysicists. Inspired by the enormously popular introductory astronomy course that Neil deGrasse Tyson, Michael A. Strauss, and J. Richard Gott taught together at Princeton, this book covers it all—from planets, stars, and galaxies to black holes, wormholes, and time travel. Describing the latest discoveries in astrophysics, the informative and entertaining narrative propels you from our home solar system to the outermost frontiers of space. How do stars live and die? Why did Pluto lose its planetary status? What are the prospects of intelligent life elsewhere in the universe? How did the universe begin? Why is it expanding and why is its expansion accelerating? Is our universe alone or part of an infinite multiverse? Answering these and many other questions, the authors open your eyes to the wonders of the cosmos, sharing their knowledge of how the universe works. Breathtaking in scope and stunningly illustrated throughout, Welcome to the Universe is for those who hunger for insights into our evolving universe that only world-class astrophysicists can provide.

The beloved creator of Notes from the Universe distills a career's worth of inspiration into elegant, brief lessons for making our way through the world--conceived as a guidebook for his young daughter yet relevant to everyone who's living a life on earth. (In other words, everyone.) Mike Dooley returns with what he expects to be his most impactful book yet: a volume of elegant, brief lessons conceived as a message from a father to his daughter, and equally relevant to everyone who's living a life on earth. (In other words, everyone.) Mike is a beloved teacher and thought leader for seekers around the world, known for his trademark humor, wisdom, and sheer joy in living--all of which he's shared in his 17 books and his free daily e-mails of Notes from the Universe. His Beginner's Guide to the Universe, inspired by such classics of gem-like wisdom as Life's Little Instruction Book, The Four Agreements, and The Things You Can See Only When You Slow Down, gives voice to his most essential, heartfelt advice about living deliberately and creating consciously. Guiding the reader thoughtfully and joyfully through a range of topics--including family and relationships, power and responsibility, adversity and bouncing back from it, even the nature of heaven, angels, and God--Mike succeeds in making a happy life in this universe seem easily within our reach. With short passages of text placed artfully on each page, and a format that's a pleasure to hold in the hand, this is an ideal gift for a parent, a parent-to-be, a child, a new grad, a dear friend, or anyone who needs a dose of Dooley, whether they know it or not.

We can walk around, breathe, drink water, eat vegetables, read books, not get poisoned or crushed to death when we go outside - it's lovely right where we are.) Not convinced? GOOD!
