Synopsis

WHAT ARE WE? WHERE DO WE COME FROM? WHY DO WE EXIST? In this groundbreaking book, John Hands examines current scientific knowledge about human evolution from primordial energy at the beginning of the universe, and controversially argues that many of the ideas we assume to be true - such as the Big Bang and the selfish gene - are, in fact, contradicted by new evidence. Unbiased, incisive and written with enviable clarity for both the general reader and the specialist, Cosmosapiens reveals that this new evidence shows an underlying pattern of cooperation, complexification and convergence. As a result of this accelerating evolutionary process, we humans are the only species on Earth which possesses self-reflective consciousness - a quality which enables us to determine our own evolutionary future.
