About this book

Describes how a spiritual outlook combined with a capacity for rotational thought have enabled Homo Sapiens to prosper through the millenia. It convincingly depicts these traits as part of our genetic makeup, and as the likely cause of our ultimate downfall against the inexorable laws of nature.
