    1. My sister gave me this for Christmas in 2007 as I'm sure I must've told her I want anything by Francisco Varela, the co-editor with Jeremy Hayward.I'll rate it again when I get around to reading it.I discovered a connection in 2010 while skimming a UCLA library book by Herbert Guenther, "From Reductionism to Creativity: rDzogs-chen and the New Sciences of Mind," (2001): Jeremy Hayward wrote the forward!

    2. "If we lose human values & human beings become part of a machine, there is no freedom from pain & pleasure." Dalai Lama

    3. The first book I read from the Mind and Life series. Fascinating research and science presented by his guests. Great perceptive questions and insights from the Dalai Lama.
