In My Journey , Ervin Laszlo recounts the story of his life, describing its fundamental transformations from musician to academic to global activist. But this story is more than an entertaining read-it also conveys a message. It shows that the quest that has marked Laszlo's life is profound and meaningful, and important also for the reader. It is the quest to find the purpose that underlies our life. Laszlo marshals scientific evidence that life is not a meaningless accident, but the expression of a universal drive in nature: the drive toward the evolution of complex and coherent systems, and of the consciousness that is associated with the systems. What you do in your life impacts on you and impacts on everyone in this interdependent and interacting quantum universe. Here the reader can follow how Laszlo came across the evidence for life's purpose and how his life has been changed again and again by the pursuit of this discovery. He now communicates his life-story, the story of his quest for life's purpose, as he is convinced that it can lend meaning and significance also to the life of the reader.
