Guide for New-man
An account of history and the future. Topics on physics, chemistry, nutrition, biology are treated in a simplified form using analogies and easy-to-understand language.
Humans destroy nature and re-invent it. They replace their bodies by robots and achieve immortality by storing their brains in a centralized safe haven called Heaven Inc. and by controlling their replaceable robot bodies remotely. The founders of Heaven Inc. find a new world and use a collection of best genes from animals and plants to create a new life form called new-man. They teach new-man all they know, and in turn new man leads them to god.
This book is written to guide new-man much like our bible was written to guide us. Written in a poetic and simplified style full with analogies, it outlines the history of the universe and of mankind and of the physical and social sciences and philosophy. It offers rational explanations of physical laws of gravity, inertia and light as well as a rational answer to the circular question of how a creator god came to be without being created.
