About this book

Science is littered with gaping holes, the elephants in the room of human understanding that simply won't go away. The questions that form the basis of this book are often ignored, because they are too hard, embarrassing, costly or controversial to answer. They include Where did language come from? How did life begin? Why are there 2 sexes? They are the questions that, when asked properly, will thoroughly embarrass an egghead.


Introduction; What, exactly, is time?; Why do things that are moving keep moving?; What is 96 per cent of the Universe made of?; Why do we age?; Where did language come from?; Do animals know they exist?; Why do we have sex?; What is consciousness?; How did life begin?; Why is there anything here at all?
