In the opening pages of Divine Principles, Ungerecht begins with the notion that science has a long history of error and misinformation. Science, the author explains, is not infallible despite our preconceived ideas to the contrary. The original definition of science, he argues, is "knowing through method," which would further advance his theory that science is not always correct. Mathematics is the language used in science, but Ungerecht points out that there are many scientists who are picking and choosing which mathematical possibilities to believe in. Meanwhile, other scientists are leaving out the divine principles; the possibility that there is a benevolent, omnipresent energy, which he believes is responsible for our creation. Human beings, Ungerecht argues, were not created by chance or the Big Bang theory alone but rather by a universal spirit that our brains are incapable of understanding at this point in our evolution.
This is a captivating read about spirituality, religion, and science. Although the author addresses complex issues, he writes without intimidation or preachiness. Ungerecht touches on many controversial issues in his book as well, like the idea that artificial intelligence is the next socio-revolution or that our universe made up of holograms. He discusses the spiritual beings, Seth and Lazaris, with the same unbiased voice that he uses to theorize about astral versus physical bodies. By including simple graphs and easy to understand analogies, a deck of cards for instance, the author succeeds in broadening our perceptions of reality. At the heart of the book is the author's belief that we are eternal and divine beings. Divine Principles is a thought-provoking look into our unique existence as humans.
