Life is full of different challenges. Technological equipment has been invented to overcome these challenges. Imagine we want to travel without a car or bike. It would be a difficult circumstance. Technology is not limited to things invented by scientific research. Anything that makes life easier for humans is technology. Cooperation is technology because problems are solved during the process. This book teaches readers the principles of nature and how to apply these technologies to become great individuals.
Quanology: Evolution and You by John Khoury is a book where the author discusses the naturalistic meaning of life. The first section of the book explains who we are as humans. Human beings are intelligent animals with the help of technology. Humans were created by nature, and if we want to fulfil our purpose, we must understand the principles of nature. The author explains it using the example of the natural selection of a river. If we move in the direction of the waterside, our life will be successful, but if we move in another direction, we will not enjoy the benefits of life. The author compares life with compound interest. We are in life to make a profit. Most of the things we are developing now were discovered by the previous generation. Nature is based on the principles of Genetic Proliferation Rate (GPR), Genetic Proliferation Potential (GPP) and Genetic Proliferation Strategy (GPS). When we grasp these principles, our lives will be easier. The author also discusses beliefs in the book. Religion is a cultural technology that is learned, not discovered. Read the 297 pages of the book to know the principles of life according to nature.
I like some aspects of the book. The author discusses the challenges we encounter because we do not understand the principles of nature. The book was based on facts. The graphs in the book were beneficial. The graphs help me understand the book better as a computer engineering student. For instance, the two charts on page 37 help me understand life using the example of compound interest, a topic in mathematics. I love how the author uses life examples to explain his points. The author uses the examples of John Kennedy and Todd Balderschmidt to illustrate how our Genetic Proliferation Potential (GPP) can be affected by our location. It was helpful because it taught me the kind of people we associate ourselves with and our location greatly affects our Genetic Proliferation Potential (GPP). The author discusses different issues in the book, such as technology, beliefs, natural selection, relationships, science, government and the economy. The way the author presented the information was excellent. Life is natural, and we do most things because of our genes and beliefs. Genes are our biological makeup, while beliefs, thoughts and ideas are our cultural makeup.
I did not like some aspects of the book. The author reiterates some points in the book. For instance, the author explains the competition humans face during their lifetime in the first and last sections of the book. It made the book repetitive because I read a point numerous times. The author reiterates his explanations of the Genetic Proliferation Rate (GPR), Genetic Proliferation Potential (GPP) and Genetic Proliferation Strategy (GPS) multiple times in the book.
The book is humorous and teaches valuable principles to readers. There are several strategies we must employ if we want to be successful. I want to thank the author for his work in writing this extraordinary piece. I found no error in the book, so it is exceptionally well-edited. Due to the aspects of the book I like, I rate it 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it to men and women who want to read a book on the principles of nature to help us live a successful life.
