About the book:

The nature of life is the greatest mystery of all. What is it? Is there a soul? If so, can it truly survive bodily death, as religions universally teach? And then what? Does it reincarnate, as Eastern religions say? Or does it sit at the side of God for eternity, as believed in the West? Here is an exciting new dialectic on the soul that explores these and many other questions.

Certainly there is room in the universe for the soul. The cosmos, even as we know it, has many mysteries lying waiting to be explored. So why has science failed to unlock the greatest mystery of all, the nature and purpose of life itself?

Robert Allan Stewart has devoted his life to studying the soul. Now, in the fourth book in his impressive Personal Consciousness Series, he asks us to look within ourselves for the root of life. Science has taught us so much, and yet we do not know what life is. Why?

Stewart argues persuasively on behalf of the existence of the soul, its survival of bodily death, and the worlds it joins beyond our own. He builds a complete paradigm of how the soul must operate within the physical universe if it is indeed to survive the body. He draws on all aspects of science, metaphysics, religion, and philosophy, carefully building each block of his argument on a firm foundation of facts and logic. Stewart shows us how all the available evidence points, not only toward our survival of death, but to how the soul functions in the physical universe! As he graphically shows, there is little reason not to believe in the soul and a great many reasons why we should.

Stewart encourages us to take a new look at ancient beliefs. Every human society in history has believed in the soul and its place in a universe populated with gods, spirits, demons, angels, and a host of other unseen entities. There are truths in religion, mysticism, and magic still unexplored and explained. Such a renewed quest can lead us to understand the soul, God, and the forces and powers of other worlds.

Coupled with the mounting evidence derived through impeccable scientific research, the arguments become more than persuasive. They are convincing!

Lucid, insightful, a riveting read!

"I admire Mr. Stewarts scholarship and the wide range of source and arguments he brings to bear on his thesis." M.S., New York, NY.

"Certainly impressive" D.O., Santa Monica, CA

From the text:

"How did the life on this world get started? In fact, what is life? Is there anything that we can point to and say, there, that is life? Remove that, and you remove life from the body?"

"From simplistic ghost stories to complex theological systems, the human experience has always led to a world view that includes alternate realities."

"Perhaps as a choice between existence and nonexistence, all the universe has chosen to exist. Perhaps this choice is the creative spark that God wrought. And each of us, as enduring souls, may someday be equally creative."

"What reincarnation gives us, in purely physical terms, is a way of defeating the second law of thermodynamics."

"Far from miracles happening only in ancient days, people still experience other-worldly phenomena daily."
