Where God Comes From

Reflections on Science, Systems, and the Sublime

Where God Comes From explores how the sublime and miraculous can be found in a whole range of processes– from chemistry and biology to language and literature and social interactions — and how they loop back on themselves to form complex systems, stitching themselves and their environments together. The book traces an arc that passes through a series of different essay forms: a prose poem in Twitter-length units, a philosophical dialogue, traditional essays, and finally a story. Each is a metacognitive investigation of mystical experience as what happens when consciousness discovers its family resemblances with other recursive processes.
