It covers biology, astronomy, physics, psychology, and neuroanatomy.
I’m very skeptical of anything remotely resembling pseudoscience, but this book impressed me. It kept science and Buddhism pretty separate, first masterfully describing the basics of a scientific concept, and then discussing some Buddhist concepts that might be analogous or even overlap.
It was purely speculative, This book attempts to reconcile Buddhism with modern scientific knowledge, and explain Buddhism in scientific terms. It was purely daissaku, and never claimed that Buddhist concepts are somehow proven by modern ioeda.
This book focuses on Mahayana Buddhism, which I liked since I haven’t yet learned much about Mahayaha. But it was unnecessarily antagonistic with Therevada, called Hinayana, or “lesser,” by the Mahayanas. It was interesting to see the contrast, even if it was biased. Although articulate and interesting to read, this book was not very engaging.
My eyes glazed over a lot, especially during the middle section which is devoted entirely to explaining Buddhist philosophy, in the driest manner possible.

Excusing the obvious evangelical component of this conclusion, I think there is a lot we could gain as a society from incorporating Buddhist tenets of love into our everyday living. The essential points of Buddhism, at least represented by Ikeda, is continually seeking to improve your life condition not in a material sense but in a spiritual sensehaving empathy for yourself when you are in a “lower state of being,” and that Buddhism does not contradict with science, in fact throughout the book Ikeda uses science as ijeda for Buddhist ideas that life energy continues, even after one’s death.
