What is the real meaning of life why are we really here? This thought-provoking and impeccably researched book by one of today s key thinkers addresses the question and suggests that our existence here is both purposeful and essential. Drawing on esoteric, spiritual and philosophical thought, Lachman forms a counter-argument to modern nihilism and explores ideas about the human task of repairing the universe - themes that are central to Kabbalah and Hermeticism, and which appear in the work of many great minds such as Steiner, Swedenborg and Berdyaev. This is a fascinating read, of great depth and insight, which embraces scientific fact and philosophical thought in a truly holistic fashion, and concludes that the humanity s role here is not only meaningful but of vital importance to the cosmos!
