Banyen's Description: 

In Sun of gOd, cultural pioneer and philosopher Gregory Sams takes a fresh look at our solar benefactor. As Sams sees it, the Sun is a living, conscious being, fully aware of itself and its place in the universe. Simply put, the Sun communicates with other conscious beings on all levels with an intelligence that dwarfs our own.

In Sun of gOd, Sams considers God, gods, notions of divinity, our place in the firmament, the intelligence of light, feedback, free will, electro-magnetism, crystals, fractals, macrobiotics, the four elements, and the self-organizing force that seems to crop up everywhere, perhaps powering everything. In his words, “A universal consciousness pervades all matter, whatever its form of existence… This consciousness is the vibrational DNA of the universe.”

Could it really be that the universe waited 13.7 billion years — until we came along — to manifest the phenomenon of consciousness and made ours the only type of vessel able to experience it?

Sams thinks not. Citing David Bohm’s discovery that even on the subatomic level of electrons there appears to be intention and choice, Sams goes on to imagine that creative intelligence may be a bottom-up system in which “everything, from a molecule of water to a neuron in our brain to the Sun itself, is a part of the bottom that is subtly steering a greater whole.”

Sams’ exploration smoothly joins the microcosm and the macrocosm, revealing a universe incorporating both intelligence and design, with no need for an Intelligent Designer.

“Gregory Sams asserts that the Sun is endowed with intelligence and consciousness. In the brilliantly articulated chapters of this remarkable book, he also provides a provocative paradigm for understanding the self-organizing capacities of the entire Universe.” —Stanley Krippner, co-editor of Varieties of Anomalous Experience

Publisher’s Description: 

In Sun of gOd, cultural pioneer and philosopher Gregory Sams takes a fresh look at our solar benefactor. As Sams sees it cultures throughout the ancient world were right to recognize the Sun as a living, conscious being. The implications of a conscious provider in the sky are startling, though often obvious -- and in harmony with science, logic and common sense.

Sun of gOd explores exciting new ground, adding a crucial piece to the jigsaw-puzzle picture we have of the cosmos. In the light of a conscious Sun, Sams looks at our hard-wired tendency for religion, notions of god and divinity, our place in the firmament, star formation, intelligent light, electromagnetism, feedback, chaos theory, free will, the four elements, and the near-universal self-organization of systems from the bottom up.
