Inside the Mind of God
Images and Words of Inner Space
Edited by Michael Reagan
Introduction by Sharon Begley
Who seeing the stunning order in networks linking tens upon tens of thousands of variables can fail to entertain a central thought: if ever we are to attain a final theory in biology, we will surely have to see that we are the natural expressions of a deeper order. Ultimately, we will discover in our creation myth that we were expected after all. —Stuart Kauffman
Now available in paperback, this book offers exhilarating photographs and inspiring words that take the reader on a microscopic tour of a miraculous phenomenon within the human body and elsewhere. This journey utilizes microscopic imagery to document the beautiful and mysterious realm of the tiniest components of life, revealing a symmetry, a perfection, and, ultimately, a revelation.
Illuminating quotes from the finest literary and scientific minds—Pasteur, Tolstoy, Einstein, St. Augustine, Thoreau, Darwin, just to name a few, support the idea that science may prove to be a path to God and that the human brain itself, through what researchers are now calling its "spirituality circuit," is wired to lead us to that path.
With an introduction by Wall Street Journal science editor Sharon Begley, Inside the Mind of Godpromises to provide further insight into the abiding question: Why is there something, rather than nothing?
Michael Reagan's best-selling book The Hand of God juxtaposed photographs of spiraling galaxies, shimmering nebulae, and luminous stars with the words of great scientists and philosophers to suggest the profound link between the scientific and the spiritual. Inside the Mind of God continues this journey, now into inner space. The stunning photographs and inspiring quotes create a sense of wonder and awe in the miraculous evidence of God's hand in the smallest details of our existence.
