“The central theme of `Six Words` is an imaginary (contrived) seminar, as if held in a parallel universe where the great scientists and philosophers of the world – past and present – present, and their views on Science and Philosophy. Based on their inputs and the author`s unique insight, a philosophical model is developed which, in the author`s view, has the best chance of bringing about a fusion of Science with Religion and thereby bringing to an end all religion based conflicts and wars. Two fundamental requirements – initial conditions – need to be fulfilled in order that the said philosophical model is acceptable to both Science and Religion. These are:
1) The established principles of Science must not be violated, which is a requirement of Science, and
2) The universe must make sense, which is a requirement of Religion.
The nature of God – and Reality – must be understood in a way that brings about a realization that there is nothing unique about us human beings in the affairs of the universe, and if `randomness` is leading our human civilization towards collapse, no God of any kind will come to our rescue. We will have to create the necessary probabilities to save ourselves.``
