Powerful, thrilling new insights pointing to meaning and how everything began. As Leaves of Grass', and 'The Prophet', 'Poetical Relationships' is a small book, however, which also traverses a broad range of ideas and experiences. It provides a short reading, for these busy times, which, however, also inspires boundless reflection and discovery. It makes a valuable, inexpensive addition to a personal library.

Interest in seeking a possible theory of everything, or what had been called at times the ultimate truth, has been the subject of numerous recent writings. Presented are unique reflections by an open-minded scientist on twenty subjects including evolution, aesthetics, quantum mechanics, and other intriguing topics using the prism of poetical phraseology to reveal novel perceptions. Philosophy had once been the domain of certain thinkers who often sought answers to metaphysical questions by making use of accurate observation, deduction, and the use of logic. Thus, a new avenue to formal knowledge had become developed, apart from revelation, which laid the basis for the scientific method. However, as science began to describe the world, it was realized that findings from science had major philosophical implications; thus the process has come full circle and increasingly more scientists are writing about the philosophical and metaphysical implications of science.

From being a specialist in science, the author transforms himself to become an observer, much as a passenger on a train, of nature, science, and the cosmos enabling new insights regarding original cause. The author assembles the philosophical and metaphysical observations into a collection of literary impressions and abstractions.
