There is a story growing inside you - a story as big as the universe, and as mind-blowing and as beautiful. And you are growing inside that story. Your personal story is an essential strand of the Big Story. Life's story begins, we are told, from elements released into space in the death of a star. But what of our destiny? Does that speck of stardust also hold within it a "spark of God"? Is life evolving towards levels of consciousness that we cannot begin, as yet, even to imagine? This is a book full of questions. It invites you to participate in the "great conversation" about our origins and our destiny and what it might mean to become fully and truly human, and to discover your own response to that challenge. Here science and spirituality meet, and a bold new synthesis emerges between them.
