A provocative look at the purpose of life through a mixture of religion, science and personal experience! The Universe Within Us is a mixture of science, religion, and personal experience that offers a new, more truthful understanding of our place and purpose in the universe, and to the inevitable conclusion that every human being possess a spiritual nature. Offering insight into every thinking persons look at life, the author argues that the answers to the purpose of life have long been the domain of priests and clergy, and, more recently, scientists. The religious answers often leave the intellect out and defy what the rational mind can accept. The scientific answers satisfy the intellect at the expense of the heart and soul. Drawing on all resources available: from the sciences, from the world's sacred scriptures, and from personal observations and experiences, Harper offers a unique map of the universe, and an explanation of life's purpose that is truly satisfying.
