Devoured the book in two days! One of the best books I've ever read.

I've been following Jamie's work for quite a few years now, and was beyond excited for the chance to read this book.

And I was blown away by the beauty, humor, and brilliance of the story and ideas shared. I kept thinking "Holy sh*t, this just keeps getting more and more fascinating" From neuroscience to psychology to anthropology to mythology––it's all beautifully woven in as a ripping story.

Recommended for anyone who's curious

Looking for an earth moving addition to your philosophy library? If you like challenging your own bias, if you find yourself somewhere between the wide expanse of rejecting organized religion AND the rejection of nihilist thinking, if you are interested in viable pathways that restore personal and collective meaning in our lives and in our world, this is absolutely a book to dive into, to savor and share. I’m on round two and taking notes.

“Back in the age of empires, pharaohs built pyramids and kings constructed castles, enshrining their divine right to rule. In the medieval era, monasteries and cathedrals loomed large across Europe, reflecting the power of the Church. With the emergence of the nation-state in the eighteenth century, capitols and courthouses took center stage in urban plans and skylines. By the twentieth century and the age of corporations, skyscrapers towered above everything—monuments to the barons and banks that built them. Today, silicon campuses designed by celebrity architects claim the spotlight. Power has now been harnessed in the physical world by those who invented our virtual ones.” 0 likes
