Easy-reading chapters about a few locations on the frontiers of various sciences. The majority are about the life sciences, especially if the one on consciousness is so classified. The later ones talk about the holographic principle and the quantum-computer view of the universe, difficulties with the concordance model of cosmology, the question of computability beyond the Turing limit, and the nature of time.
