This book helped me claw myself back from a pit of despair. And this evolution is far from complete, for large areas of the human mind are still shrouded in darkness. Why do we think we have the answers to the universe? Why are we so cocksure of our atheism when quantum mechanics has already proven the existence of God?

Meaning and purposefulness are not the prerogatives of the mind; they operate in the whole of living nature.
