DESCRIPTION:  This is a nicely presented concept that is well argued. The 
author has considered the case for life on Earth as conceived and nurtured by an 
external force in a great experiment  – Commended.

Man developed religions to explain what could not be explained. In doing so some very creative 
concepts were advanced and debate excluded by claiming that a particular religious concept was 'the 
word of God(s)' and must be believed on pain of death in this existence and damnation in an afterlife. 
Then along came science to dispute anything that could not be proven by repeatable experimentation. 
Part of science then became a new religion where the answer was presented before the research, with a 
demand for belief and blind acceptance. The Cult of Global Warming is one example where claims that 
'all scientists support the full conclusions of the cult' and 'this proves global warming', where the most 
diverse and contending events are all claimed as proof. Anyone who questions the very questionable 
conclusions is treated as any religion treats an apostate.

For more than seventy years programmable computers have opened many new opportunities to process 
information that could never before be processed, at least in a human lifetime. As each new generation 
of computer has arrived, it has been able to provide richer functionality, faster data processing and greater 
storage. As we have begun to interconnect computers in ever larger, faster, more complex networks, the 
available sum of human knowledge has grown explosively. With the advent of limited space travel, many 
long established beliefs have been challenged, but the brain is still the most flexible processor of 
information with the ability to apply creativity that is still beyond any computer. In time, Artificial 
Intelligence will develop to the point where computers could become a new life form, capable of 
replicating themselves and thinking autonomously. Quite where this will leave us, and our comfortable 
beliefs, remains to be seen.

Within this amazing rate of development lies Quantum Theory that offers some very impressive 
alternatives and probabilities. Not least, it challenges the long held concept that time is the platform on 
which all else exists and that it travels at a constant speed in only one direction. We should therefore
 expect to see more books like this enjoyable tour through history and look into how it has come to pass,
 where it may lead to and what we should consider as our part in a great experiment. Those who cling to 
established beliefs may still be bewildered, or deeply offended, some will convert and for others this will 
be a challenging and provoking thesis that will spark new lines of thought.

The author is both a physicist and agnostic who rejects the existence of supernatural forces and cannot 
accept conclusions unsupported by proper scientific evidence. He does however accept that there are many 
phenomena that cannot currently be explained. In part this is the challenge of belief and belief in science. 
At what point is a new thesis really supported by proper scientific evidence? Darwin was viciously attacked 
by established scientists who refused to accept that his revolutionary concepts were in any way supported 
by proper scientific proof. Today, Darwin's theories are widely accepted as the proven explanation of the 
development of life on Earth. Those theories have accepted new theories and observations, based on the idea 
that space objects, entering Earth atmosphere, have brought new forms of life, as reinforcing Darwin's 
Theories. However, they also introduce new equations and this could be viewed as a return to the challenges 
facing ancient religions. 

When people asked how the Earth was supported, some priests replied that it was carried on the shoulders of 
a giant. Ah yes, but in that case what is supporting the giant? The response was that the giant was standing 
on a turtle. Ah yes, but what is supporting the turtle? To which the priests responded that the turtle was 
swimming in a great ocean. Ah yes, but what is supporting and containing the ocean? To which the creative 
priest came up with the theory of infinity for the ocean. Of course now we accept the theory of gravity as the f
orce that keeps everything in the Universe moving in an ordered form, but that still leaves many questions and 
brings back infinity as a scientific way of saying “yes we don't have a clue, but we are not prepared to admit that”.

The author has asked some important questions and presented some proofs. The human difficulty is in thinking 
of things that are still beyond imagining. The religions still offer a comforting story that there is a supreme being 
or a family of supreme beings who created everything and plan their development, leaving individuals to follow 
the scriptures and use this life as a rehearsal for a great afterlife, where the concept has no clear proof but does 
have a certain logical basis.

The basic question is how the Earth came to exist and then develop into an environment that would support a 
huge diversity of life forms, supporting the development of some and the extinction of others. One of the 
answers gathering a following is that extraterrestrials found a useful lump of gas and rock that could be
 terraformed and then populated with life forms, engineered by these same beings and developed through 
controlled breeding. From the moment that the first tentative steps were taken to explore space, variants of that 
theory have been advanced . Logically, there are other life forms across the galaxies in the same way that sailors 
discovered new lands that were already populated, with some of those societies being less advanced than the 
sailors and some more advanced. We now know that life forms do travel on space bodies, perhaps over great 
periods of time, before coming into an environment, such as that on Earth, where they can bloom, develop and 
expand. That suggests an end to the idea that life was created exclusively on Earth and all current life forms 
developed out of earlier life forms as they adapted to surrounding conditions, learned to live in new conditions 
and competed with other life forms, with the fittest surviving and the others becoming extinct.

The author has presented some compelling arguments and conclusions and what ever the reader finally decides 
to accept, or reject, it makes for an absorbing read.
