Publisher's Summary

Why are we here? Human beings have asked themselves this question for centuries. Modern science largely argues that human beings are chance products of a purposeless universe, but other traditions believe humanity has an essential role and responsibility in creation.

Lachman brings together many strands of esoteric, spiritual and philosophical thought to form a counter-argument to the nihilism that permeates the twenty-first century. Offering a radical alternative to postmodern apathy, he argues that we humans are the caretakers of the universe, entrusted with a daunting task: That of healing and repairing creation itself.

This is an important book from a key thinker of our time, addressing some of the most urgent questions facing humanity.

BEST book I have ever read!!!

This remarkable book has overtaken ALL I have ever read! A “life long learner” (thinker, “philosopher”) now 78, it had a LOT to beat out 😂 and considering that my reading diet is self-restricted to the “deep” and the classics, and that my last all-time favorite was Stephan Hoeller’s “Gnostic Jung”, which held that place for almost 30 years, it astounds me, myself, that I should judge it so! It truly is as close as I have ever read or heard to a true TOE without claiming so and with a number of laughs along the way! I can hardly wait to start my second listening!!!

Stimulating ideas

We need people like Gary Lachman to remind us of how we are not mere passive observers of a world "out there", but add meaning and significance to it. Some references to writers of fiction are a little difficult to understand if you haven't read their books, but it is worth persisting.
