David Christian gives the answers in a mind-expanding cosmological detective story told on the grandest possible scale. He traces how during eight key thresholds, the right conditions have allowed new forms of complexity to arise,from stars to galaxies, from Earth to homo sapiens. Thrillingly told, ORIGIN STORY reveals what we learn about human existence when we consider it from a universal scale.
