Physicist F. David Peat is one of the most interesting and innovative thinkers of our time. In this reflective look at the synchronicities of his life, Peat reminisces about his friendship with colleagues like fellow physicist David Bohm, brain researcher Roger Penrose, sculptor Anish Kapoor and high school physics teacher Dicky Blink. Peat’s life is a kaleidoscope of meaningful coincidences in which people and ideas come to him as if by magic. He points out there is something deeper at work in the universe and in our personal lives than chance or even rational thought. “We are much more than our cognitive strategies,” he insists. Through his stories he explores the relationship between science, art, creativity, and culture. His interaction with native peoples has led him to the conclusion that the future has an ancient heart.
