About the Book

What can this book bring you?

You are invited to participate in a journey of the mind through time – in a rising arch from the dawn of our cosmic origin, through natural evolution to an analysis of the capabilities of the human mind. A discussion follows of the meaning or direction to pursue on the path of our life, through coping or toward fulfillment –– until we reach the dusk of ultimate fading and death.

At the end follows an outlook into the future, discussing the fundamental risks and opportunities for mankind.

The eight chapters of this book present the author’s “Essential Writings” as condensed from 33 of his articles published on his website www.schwab-writings.com.

The author, with MS degrees in physics and electronics, worked in the aero-space and high-tech industries, continued research as auditor at Princeton University, pursued philosophy and theology, and wrote with sincere empathy for all the searching and suffering individuals he encountered, but also with a practical mind.

Become enriched by this deeper understanding of our existence, nature, and our path through life which may simply entertain you or give you peace in daily turmoil and strength to act as your own journey and values demand.

About the Author

Helmut Schwab rose from trying circumstances, studied physics, became an executive in aero-space and high-tech industries. His personal research concentrated on a deeper understanding of the cosmic and biological world we find ourselves living in, on the human mind’s capability, and on human society.

He pursued philosophy and theology in studying the dichotomy between science and religion, with the question of the consequent meaning or direction for our lives.

Schwab wrote with sincere empathy for all the other searching and suffering individuals he encountered, but also with a practical mind. He volunteered in the community on environmental issues, concerns of the handicapped, and for low-income families in our inner cities.

He found joy in life in observing beauty in nature, through participation in the arts – see his published collection of short stories “The Golden Mirror” – and, mainly, in a supportive family and cheerful companionship.
