The overwhelming factual evidence presented by the author
breaks through the traditional barriers of divide between
the science and the spirit as he connects the messages of
the scriptures to the evolution of human species during the
course of the past 3.5 billion years and offers a fresh look
into the possibilities of our future growth during the next
seven billion years - the remaining age of planet earth. And
this he does by unveiling the mysteries locked in our biological
makeup. The idea of our passage into supramental species emerges
as the idea of a New Age and imparts futuristic orientation
to an otherwise aimless civilisation buzz...
Species and Beyond is a bit of a difficult book to do
justice to. While I followed most of Rajesh Singh's reasoned
arguments on what may await the future of mankind, as well
as the path that every single soul that is alive today must
follow, I wasn't so convinced by some of his arguments. But
then, that's the beauty of publications like this - it's not
essential that you agree with the author's views. Like any
intelligent debate, it's actually more interesting when you
don't agree fully with another party. One thing is certain
though, Singh will open your mind to other possibilities -
which, I suspect is his true aim in publishing this book in
the first place.

the books biggest flaw is using the Bible to back up
a lot of its claims. I have several issues with this. Firstly,
you have to take it as red that the Bible is indeed
the word of God, and not a book written by powerful men to
keep the rest of us living in fear of going to Hell if we
don't behave ourselves. And secondly, you can use the Bible
to argue any point and always find a passage that backs up
thankfully he does quote many other references (although,
sometimes these seemed to be taken a little out of context),
and I was moved to seek out some of his reference material
for a more in-depth look at his arguments.
also took issue with Singh's insistence on going around the
houses when explaining his ideas, and his overly long sentences
which could have been broken down to make them more easily
digestible. For example, on the theory of the Big Bang:
a period of time the science of cosmology, that seeks to
reduce seemingly chaotic proportions of astronomical activity
to well-defined spurrings of the initial few seconds succeeding
the bang, has become increasingly susceptible to the investigative
efforts of physics and quantum mechanics to integrate this
bang, say, of a black hole or a neutron star, with an energy
regime which passes into the phenomenal world with enormous
ease and rapidity from its own parental world of the noumen.
be honest, on the whole Singh does make an impressive case
for his theories... which, at the end of the day, is all they
you follow his arguments, or view them as the rantings of
a cult leader in the making, one thing is certain, Singh's
views are intriguing and certainly warrant your time in discovering.
