A young brilliant
philosopher, René Descartes, proposed to
separate mind and body as a temporary expedient to
permit investigation of the human organism
unencumbered by the dogma of the ruling church. This
basic idea has been dominating science, medical
practice and western thought for almost four
centuries. Cogito, ergo sum,...I think, therefore I
am! It has lasted this long, because it brought

The lines you just read are the opening lines in
the original print version of 1996. In the meantime the
fronts have hardened and the “schism in our society”
mentioned has not diminished.
For instance, in 2007, the Council of Europe

New Age literature
has a fundamentally different message, because it
communicates the incredible interconnectedness of
mind, body and spirit.
Consequently, this ‘science by policy’ denies every
schoolchild and young adult the logical existence of
their soul, because Darwinian evolutionary theory has no
place for the soul.
This book takes you on a journey where the
existence of our souls is in full harmony with the
discoveries in science, including evolution.
I have a dream .... that our educators will
encourage every child to discover their own soul and
discover it as a source of inner strength, energy and
creativity. That they feel confident in doing so because
they know that it is in harmony with logic, our great
heritage in the sciences and our accumulated evidence
about ‘who we are’.
Enjoy the read,
