The Biology Of Transcendence: A Blueprint Of The Human Spirit, by Joseph Chilton Pearce, from Park Street Press, ISBN 1594770166. Why does humanity seem stuck in violence and injustice? How can we reach the transcendent ideal represented by Jesus, Lao-tzu, and other spiritual teachers? The author of Magical Child uses the current biological understanding of our neural organization to explain how we can go beyond its limitations - how we can transcend. His research reveals that the evolutionary structures of the brain and its interaction with the heart are designed by nature to reach beyond its normal capacities. We were made to transcend.
