: Who are we, and how did we get here? These are two of the most fundamental questions facing scientists and cosmologists alike and have rested at the center of human intellectual endeavor since its beginning. They are questions that stretch across numerous disciplines. But with many groups seeking answers using different methods, it can be difficult to tell what progress has been made without stepping back and looking at the whole interdisciplinary picture. John Hands does exactly that. His synthesis of ideas, ten years in the making, reveals underlying patterns of cooperation, complexity, and convergence that begin to tell the story of human emergence and consciousness.
