When and how did the universe begin? Why are we here? Is the apparent 'grand design' of our universe evidence for a benevolent creator who set things in motion? Or does science offer another explanation? In The Grand Design, the most recent scientific thinking about the mysteries of the universe is presented in language marked by both brilliance and simplicity. Model dependent realism, the multiverse, the top-down theory of cosmology, and the unified M-theory - all are revealed here. This is the first major work in nearly a decade by one of the world's greatest thinkers. A succinct, startling and lavishly illustrated guide to discoveries that are altering our understanding and threatening some of our most cherished belief systems, The Grand Design is a book that will inform - and provoke - like no other.

Despite the abundance of books on the Civil War, not one has focused exclusively on what was in fact the determining factor in the outcome of the conflict: differences in Union and Southern strategy. In The Grand Design, Donald Stoker provides for the first time a comprehensive and often surprising account of strategy as it evolved between Fort Sumter and Appomattox. Reminding us that strategy is different from tactics (battlefield deployments) and operations (campaigns conducted in pursuit of a strategy), Stoker examines how Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis identified their political goals and worked with their generals to craft the military means to achieve them--or how they often failed to do so. Stoker shows that Davis, despite a West Point education and experience as Secretary of War, ultimately failed as a strategist by losing control of the political side of the war. Lincoln, in contrast, evolved a clear strategic vision, but he failed for years to make his generals implement it. And while Robert E. Lee was unerring in his ability to determine the Union's strategic heart--its center of gravity--he proved mistaken in his assessment of how to destroy it. Historians have often argued that the North's advantages in population and industry ensured certain victory. In The Grand Design, Stoker reasserts the centrality of the overarching plan on each side, arguing convincingly that it was strategy that determined the result of America's great national conflict.

Increasingly, scientific discoveries are revealing similarities with spiritual concepts, but the common basis of science and spirituality has so far escaped a logical explanation. This book describes how we can understand this common basis if we do something as simple as change our point of view. After that, it becomes a matter of common sense, a brand new type of common sense that is available to everyone, not just scientists. This new common sense, called "Holistic Logic" produces surprising and convincing results when applied to dimensions that transcend our three dimensional world. Holistic Logic leads to conclusions that agree with the teachings of Christ, Vedic Scripture, and the tenets of Buddhist philosophy. Even those unschooled in science can understand how Holistic Logic holds true for discoveries in Quantum Physics and Einstein's Theory of Relativity. Holistic Logic explains spiritual reality in a rational way, using the laws of multi-dimensional reality, much in the same way we explain physical reality with laws of physics. This may well be the breakthrough that Mankind has been seeking for centuries. Holistic Logic may finally have made the connection between the science of matter and the world of spirit. In the future, this connection may prove to be even more significant than that event some 400 years ago when Humankind first understood that the earth was not the center of the universe. Today, the world is desperate for a change. As humans, we are struggling to cope with the ever increasing problems that we are causing in our eco-systems and in ourselves. We are recklessly depleting our oil reserves, we are destroying the lungs of our planet by cutting down the rainforests, and have set in motion a pattern of global warming that can have disastrous results for us and our children. As individuals, we feel that we are at the mercy of random events. Some of us are maimed or murdered, some of us develop fatal diseases, and many of us know disappointment and guilt. We don't understand the forces that drive events nor the apparent indifference of a God who expects obedience but rains misfortune down upon us. We are powerless in the face of tragedies like that which occurred on 9/11/01 Now we have the tools that will help us to avoid destruction and turn the whole situation around. We have the ability to understand and implement the laws of spiritual reality. We have a method that will help us to understand The Grand Design and to create the kind of world that we want. We have Holistic Logic. This book explains the basics of Holistic Logic, citing 10 "Holon Principles" that, when taken together, comprise the Holistic Logic System. With the aid of clear practical examples and many illustrations, the reader will understand the building blocks of physical and spiritual reality, the mysterious union of the Whole and its Parts.
