In the Preface to his latest book, Dreams, Death, Rebirth: A Topological Odyssey into Alchemy's Hidden Dimensions, Steven Rosen states: "Our greatest certainty and greatest mystery is our mortality. In this book, I explore the subject of death and rebirth from a philosophical perspective that addresses the question of human identity. What death and its possible survival mean to us depends on the meaning of “us”—they depend, that is, on what we assume to be the boundaries and limits of our being." Steve's work in this and his previous books is some of the most profound I have read. He draws upon the topological structures of the Mobius strip, the Klein bottle, and others to help us understand the truly paradoxical connection we have to other forms of life--the animal, vegetable, and mineral realms--which are not "out there" but "in here," in us. This book integrates the work of thinkers and paradigms that are not often integrated, including, Jean Gebser, C.G. Jung, alchemy, and topology. And Steve's personal dreams are used to illustrate and deepen the ideas. Truly a one of a kind journey!
