F David Peat is one of the most interesting and invative thinkers around today. This book offers a rich, inquiring and highly readable journey from the creative buzz of his native Liverpool in the sixties to a Native American talking circle. He meets some of the most fascinating minds of twentieth-century science and culture: David Bohm, Roger Penrose, Bertrand Russell, Sir Michael Tippett, Antony Gormley and Anish Kapoor. He reflects on the elusive nature of quantum reality, the way language shapes our lives, the world of the Blackfoot and his life in a medieval Italian village. Ultimately, this is a meditation upon the power of those twin forces, purpose and accident, within all our lives.
F. David Peat was born in Liverpool, has a PhD in theoretical physics, and is the author of twenty books as well as plays for radio and stage. He is deeply interested is the relationship between science, art, creativity and culture.

His books include The Blackwinged Night: Creativity in Nature and Mind, From Certainty to Uncertainty: The Story of Science and Ideas in the Twentieth Century and Synchronicity: The Bridge between Matter and Mind.
