    DescriptionIn 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. "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 suggest that creative intelligence may be a bot-tom-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." From this perspective, he smoothly joins the microcosm to the macrocosm, revealing a Universe incorporating both intelligence and design, with no need for an Intelligent Designer.

In 1982, he launched the first VegeBurger, a product he developed and christened. His brother Craig went on to found Green and Black's chocolate
    Review quote
    "A thousand snorkelstonkers for illuminating my existence with this turbo blasting whizz into the infinite and back. What a monumental rip tide of thought - truly a marvellous book. A page turner...a life enhancing, mind provoking brain tickler...always entertaining and enlightening." --Raja Ram, Musician
    Flap copy
    In Sun of gOd, cultural pioneer and bootstrap 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 of gOd communicates with other conscious beings on all levels with an intelligence that dwarfs our own. Sun of gOd explores exciting new ground, adding a crucial piece to the jigsaw-puzzle picture we have of our cosmos. 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.
