What does the creation of matter in the universe have to do with humanity's creative spirit? What is the connection between, on the one hand, art, literature, and music, and, on the other hand, mathematical theorems and scientific theories? Taking an overarching scientific view of the universe and our place in it, scientist-philosopher F. David Peat explores the incredible similarities and connections between the Universe's "creativity," which reveals itself in the laws of nature, and the creativity of human consciousness. He provides an unparalleled view of the origins of the universe and asks: What acts to transform matter into art? And how does creativity enter into the lives of each of us?Brilliant and wide-ranging, The Blackwinged Night explores the very essence of the creative spirit and the way it animates the physical world, giving us the power to experience beauty-whether gazing into the night sky or listening to Bach's B-minor Mass.
