War of the Worldviews is the best single volume I've ever read on this vital subject. Such is the promise of this thoughtful and provocative book. What is life? Deepak Chopra and Leonard Mlodinow ponder both perspectives in their lively debate, leaving the reader enriched to see the world with a new depth. The inevitable result, as science encroaches on spirituality's turf, is this compelling clash between scientist Leonard Mlodinow and spiritual advocate and physician Deepak Chopra.
This time is necessary for searching and sorting links. If Islam is peaceful, what about jihad? Chopra goes beyond science in one direction, using it as a springboard to launch his inspirational metaphysics. Such is the promise of this thoughtful and provocative book. He suggests that since the laws of nature and perhaps space and time emerged after the Planck epoch, any understanding of the pre-created universe remains outside the scope of objective science. In alternate chapters each author defends his position without disrespecting the other and the result is a remarkable contribution to the history of ideas; eminently readable, no matter which side of the fence you are on.
I know both authors well, and even though I side with one worldview over the other, I found myself compelled to read Deepak deeper to understand his worldview. Readers can decide. It is Islam, a different civilization whose people are convinced of the superiority of their culture and are obsessed with the inferiority of their power. Others seek enlightenment through a focus on subjective experience. Overall: Leonard suggests that the universe operates according to laws of physics while acknowledging that science does not address why the laws exist or how they arise.

Deepak: The universe behaves much like an embryo with the ability to build itself, consisting of components that self-organize, with a network of processes that transform it, and a self-contained space that doesn't depend on an outside cause. This book dares to ask some of the deepest, most profound questions about our very existence, and comes up with some surprising, even shocking answers.
Both use each other in a "termite strategy. What is the nature of time? Deepak: "Once you have embedded harmony and logic in the fabric of the cosmos [as evidenced by mathematics], you have a much harder time excluding consciousness.
Martians invade with such vastly superior weaponry and armor that the British militia is almost entirely useless against them. May their book become a trendsetter! Doty, M.
Readers can decide. El Akkad bled all the way through this haunting, moving, and conscience-punching book that begs the question: What if the United States turned its most ruthless foreign policies against its own people in a second American Civil War over fossil fuels?
El Akkad wrote with too much description and narration, but not enough dialogue to shape the characters and scenarios.

The evil combatants use the incompetent and indifferent to accomplish their goals for society. Deepak: The spiritual journey from normal to extraordinary does not require that nameless powers be ascribed to the face of God.
