The cross-cultural study of religion has always gone hand in hand with the worldview, sciences, or intellectual frameworks of the time. These frames, whether focused on psychology or politics, gender or colonialism, bring out perspectives for understanding religious behavior. Today one of our common civic worldviews is represented in the shift from scriptural to evolutionary history. This volume brings together in one place key essays by professor emeritus William Paden, showing a progression of steps he has taken in exploring bridgeworks between comparative religion and evolutionary models of religious behavior. One of the leading scholars in religious studies, Paden shows ways that religion can be contextualized as part of the natural world and thus seen as reflecting the ingrained sociality and world-making drive of the human species. Paden argues that although comparativism has been challenged as too culture-bound, too western, or too gendered, cross-over categories and concepts between religious traditions cannot be avoided. Arguing that there are recurrent patterns of human behavior common to our species and that thereby underlie all cultures, he proposes that the missing link in the Religion Evolution debate is comparative religion, a global, cross-cultural perspective on religious behaviours throughout time. Each article is contextualized within this overall trajectory of thought within Paden's work and the history of the discipline as a whole.

The bubbles were swirling all around me, massaging my body. As I luxuriated in this fantastic bath, I gasped realizing that those bubbles carried with them miniature galaxies bringing the entire Cosmos into my bathtub... Alfie is back. And so are George and other characters from the author’s previous book Einstein’s Enigma or Black Holes in My Bubble Bath. While the present book, Universe Unveiled - The Cosmos in My Bubble Bath, is completely independent, its storyline can be considered a sequel to the previous one. The scientific content spanning ancient world models to the most recent mysteries of cosmology is presented in an entirely nontechnical and descriptive style through the discussions between Alfie, the enlightened learner, and George, professor of astrophysics. Fantasies, based on these discussions that cover the scientific facts, are created by the magical bubble baths taken by Alfie. Universe Unveiled blends accurate science with philosophy, drama, humour, and fantasy to create an exciting cosmic journey that reads like a novel and educates as it entertains. “Spurred by a series of mind-bending discoveries, Man’s millennial love affair with the stars has now reached fever pitch. No one writing today is better positioned to evoke the romance and beauty of these cosmic discoveries than Vishveshwara. A leading expert in Einstein’s relativity theory, he brings a lyrical voice and a poetic sensibility to this joyful task. Universe Unveiled, a unique literary creation, transports readers into believing they can actually hear the music of the spheres.” Professor Robert Fuller, Former President, Oberlin College (USA) Author of Somebodies and Nobodies: Overcoming the Abuse of Rank

In this era of increased knowledge the essence of religious phenomena eludes the psychologists, sociologists, linguists, and other specialists because they do not study it as religious. According to Mircea Eliade, they miss the one irreducible element in religious phenomena—the element of the sacred. Eliade abundantly demonstrates universal religious experience and shows how humanity’s effort to live within a sacred sphere has manifested itself in myriad cultures from ancient to modern times; how certain beliefs, rituals, symbols, and myths have, with interesting variations, persisted.

Our world is an extremely inefficient and impoverished place in comparison to what it could be. There is a vast amount of room for improvement in the world around us that goes unnoticed because of simple grooved-in thinking. Even when new discoveries are made or new technology implemented, we may get far less than maximum benefit because potential applications do not occur to anyone. This book has a threefold purpose. A lot of discussion nowadays concerns "thinking outside the box." The best way to teach such thinking is through examples. The generation of new ideas will also be enhanced by systematically categorizing ideas into patterns. This will reveal several approaches to generating new ideas. The final purpose of this book is to contribute 300 new ideas for products, inventions and improvements.

We live in perilous times. We face a host of problems, mostly self-created, that appear to be insurmountable. We need to move beyond the impulses of the primate mind and its habit of separateness into a new human consciousness that would take us to a larger and deeper worldview, and change the way that we do things. Our old system of reality, which has underpinned our progress for the last 400 years, is eroding. Based on cause and effect, it was not large enough. Although quantum physics has thrown up the beginnings of a new framework, it is still largely unformed. Part of that new, emerging reality might be Harmonic Patterns. Held in the invisible depths of Being, these patterns structure all realities as they emerge into the material realm. They orchestrate reality, and provide the order and structure upon which our lives depend. In this book, Don C. Nix proposes that we look closely at Harmonic Patterns and accept them into our reality as companions to cause and effect. Harmonic Patterns are everywhere we look. They are the innate nature of Being, emerging as Being turns itself into the manifest world. We need to make a place for them.
