About the Book

Walling and Hicks make a direct assault on the "Everest" of scientific mysteries. The authors trace the first glimmerings of consciousness in evolution and during emergence from anesthesia. There are no formulae or equations; all the difficult concepts have been presented as allegories and pictures. Unlike many philosophical books about consciousness, they have evidence to back up their ideas. This book is also an attempt to bridge the chasm between science and religion which the authors believe to be largely unnecessary.

About the Author

Doctor Peter T. Walling and Mr. Kenneth N. Hicks both work in the Department of Anesthesiology at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, Texas. They have studied consciousness in the Operating Room and in the Laboratory for 10 years. Dr Walling lives on a farm where many of these unique recordings were made. Dr Walling is a recipient of the Nuffield Prize awarded to the top scorer in the Primary Fellowship Examination of The Royal College of Anaesthetists in the United Kingdom.
