elementary particles, evolution of living matter, nature and function of
matter, scientific philosophy and Buddhist thought, Sarilkhya theory of
matter, ancient and medieval biology, mysticism and modern science,
traditional cosmology, matter and medicine, matter and consciousness,

of speculation is invigorating.
