Exploring the essential unity of mind and matter

In plain everyday language this book approaches quantum physics and cosmology as “instruments of wonder”, i.e. as ways to contemplate and appreciate the extraordinary mystery we are immersed in. The eternal questions humans have been asking (who are we? what is this universe? what is mind? what is matter? what is life?) are addressed in this book from a scientific perspective. By pushing our scientific knowing as far as possible we become aware of the infinite expanse of our “unknowing”. In the end we are left with a sense of wonder at the subtlety of existence and gratitude for the outstanding ride we are freely given.
