It Started on a Flight (Paperback)
Starting with a conversation that took place during the course of a long flight, the author takes us on a condensed intellectual journey spanning a plethora of subjects. Based on his personal thoughts, experiences and readings, this voyage meanders through twists and turns. He starts with the dawn of humanity, the genesis of the myths, cults and religions including both their good and their evil aspects, from their inception up to present times. He then takes us through the Big Bang that started the universe, through its development and brings us to that of Artificial Intelligence with a projection of its consequences. He repeatedly reminds us of the extent to which the thoughts and the ideas expressed in this concise book are shared by a large number of thinkers and writers and that they are presented not as answers to questions but as topics for discussion.
