Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?
I spent a lot of time over the past 7 years consuming books on cosmology, evolution, history, the mind, artificial intelligence, philosophy and religion, trying to understand the great mysteries. I was looking for natural explanations for seemingly supernatural phenomena. After a while a pattern began to emerge. About 2 years ago, I put pen to paper to see if I could logically connect my findings in a holistic way, in an attempt to provide a solution to the three mysteries: how did we get here? What are we doing here? What is to become of us? I then decided that I should share the result of my efforts with members of the reading public, in case it might be helpful to them.
