Cosmic Conversations is an exciting book featuring interviews of a number of prominent authors and leading professional thinkers of creative consciousness and the nature of the universe. It was written in 2009 and begins with scientific findings, continues with spirituality and ends with modern cultural concepts on emerging consciousness in our world and universe today. I found this incredibly interesting as well as challenging to consider the variety of topics in Martin's interviews.

Format: Paperback
Cosmic conversations explores cosmos from different perspectives. Author and astronomer Stephan Martin interviews scientists, spiritual practitioners and other authors, speakers, thinkers etc. This format invites us as readers to further explore any of the people interviewed that we personally find to have particularly enlightening ideas. The book is divided into three parts where part 1 is called "The view from science", part 2 "The view from spirit" and part 3 "The view from culture". Central topics discussed include the idea that science and spirituality is coming toghether, the fundamental interconnectedness of all things and the nature of the universe as purposeful evolution

The book is full of various ideas and perspectives of the universe, there should be something in here for everyone. The fact that the book is transcribed from dialogue interrupts the flow of reading in some parts. It doesn't have the same streamlining purely written books may have, but this is to be expected given the format and doesn't take away anything of the books ability to adress topic or my overall enjoyment of reading it.

Format: Paperback
Presented as a collection of interviews from three very distinct perspectives, Cosmic Conversations explored the universe in both outer space and our inner selves. It's fairly easy to identify one interpretation of our lives and the universe as a whole when so many differing viewpoints are offered. I personally connected with a Native American understanding of life and it's place in the cosmos. You don't need to be a physicist to appreciate the scientific assessments nor be a spiritual leader to understand the mystic journeys explored in this book. We are Universe. What does that mean? You'll have to read the book to find out!
