This unique and stunning collection of digital images from NASA, ESO and ESA captures the visual drama, beauty and challenging activity of the universe, including star-forming clouds of gas, the most detailed image ever obtained of the Sun, the violent collisions between galaxies billions of light-years away and new discoveries confirming the presence of super-massive black holes. Dr. Raman Prinja explains the incredible breakthroughs these images have made about our understanding of the universe, in particular the fresh perspectives that scientists have gained on the structure and origin, as well as the projected future - and fate - of the universe.

A violinist sees a scarlet form when he plays a certain note; a rock star sees waves of blue and green as she composes a ballad; and an actress tastes cake when she utters the word table. This fascinating mingling of the senses is called “synesthesia,” and the people who possess this amazing gift are called “synesthetes.” Synesthesia is scientifically described as a cross-wiring, or lack of chemical inhibition, between brain neurons that occurs in about five percent of the population, often among “creatives”—musicians, artists, actors, writers, and so on. Scientific research is currently being conducted throughout the world to discover more about this condition. However, experts in the fields of spirituality and quantum physics are convinced that the truth of synesthesia lies not only within traditional science, but also within the realm of the mystical and the ineffable. Step into Maureen—s glittering alternate universe as she explores this fascinating subject, combining clear explanations of groundbreaking scientific research with an exploration of deeper spiritual truths. Tasting the Universe explains and explores: · Why survivors of near-death experiences sometimes return with this amazing gift. · Why all infants are believed to be synesthetes until four months of age. · The experiences of famous synesthetes such as Itzhak Perlman, Billy Joel, Pharrell Williams, and Marilyn Monroe (whose biographer, Norman Mailer, first asserted that she possessed this gift). For Maureen, synesthesia is not an idle “brain tick” that can be explained away by science (although it does offer some important clues), but a unique and ineffable ability to tap into and reveal a greater creative universe and even the divine. Follow along with her as she takes you on her own personal “Eat, Pray, Love” of discovery, prompted by her often confounding yet always amazing experiences growing up with this gift.

It is with great joy that we present a collection of essays written in honour of Jayant Vishnu Narlikar, who completed 60 years of age on July 19, 1998, by his friends and colleagues, including several of his for mer students. Jayant has had a long research career in astrophysics and cosmology, which he began at Cambridge in 1960, as a student of Sir Fred Hoyle. He started his work with a big bang, expounding on the steady state theory of the Universe and creating a new theory of gravity inspired by Mach's principle. He also worked on action-at-a-distance electrodynamics, inspired by the explorations of Wheeler, Feynman and Hogarth in that direction. This body of work established Jayant's rep utation as a bold and imaginative physicist who was ever willing to take a fresh look at fundamental issues, undeterred by conventional wis dom. This trait, undoubtedly inherited from his teacher and mentor, has always remained with Jayant. It is now most evident in his untir ing efforts to understand anomalies in quasar astronomy, and to develop the quasi-steady state cosmology, along with a group of highly distin guished astronomers including Halton Arp, Geoffrey Burbidge and Fred Hoyle. In spite of all this iconoclastic activity, Jayant remains a part of the mainstream; he appreciates as well as encourages good work along conventional lines by his students and colleagues. This is clear from the range of essays included in this volume, and the variety and distribution of the essayists.
