In this magazine the authors present a nontechnical review of current scientific theories of the origin of the universe, the origin of living organisms, and the nature of the conscious self. The basic finding is that the reductionistic worldview of modern science is by no means solidly established; the authors therefore outline an alternative view in which the world is understood to be only partially quantifiable and in which both purpose and spiritual qualities are granted existence.
