Explicit evidence exists for the progression of life—over a period of three-and-a-half billion years—from a strand of protein to an intelligent human, through trial, rejection and selection. The process continues and, if not hindered, a higher destiny awaits us in the distant future.Is life a property of matter? Is evolution a passive process? Or, does it have an aim or purpose? What is the role of beauty, intelligence and awareness in this evolutionary saga? Is eugenics going to hinder the natural process? Are we on our way to self-inflicted extinction?This book ponders on these questions and attempts to trace life’s quest for perfection—where beauty, vitality and wisdom meet.
