Exploring the Taoist concept of Yin and Yang, masculine and feminine, the split, and opposites, the author playfully examines the nature of the human mind, and what it seems capable of achieving.
Examples of modern chronic disease (eg: Mercury poisoning) are insidious, subtle, and reflect our modern Disconnect through stress and aggression.
Taking us on a fascinating journey through philosophy, religion, creative thinking and art, the author explores the nature of what it is to engage in human thought. She engages us in the company of Jung, particle physics, Chinese and Hindu thought, and the Patriarchy of the three main monotheistic religions.
Ultimately She suggests that - just as we seem to be on the verge of creating an unsustainable barren wilderness of our planet earth - this threat to our continued existence may of itself propel humanity forwards and towards a completely different mode of evolution - possibly one even beyond the confines of mother earth.
(This is the third in a series of interestingly provocative works by the same author: "From Cave to Computer", BK 1877 and "The Poisoned Well", BK2104).
