It is no secret that modern knowledge has become specialised into increasingly narrower 'silos'. While this has had its advantages, more are becoming aware that important connections are being neglected.

What if our universe does not care to comply with the separations we have created? What if there are 'mega-phenomena', phenomena so broad in nature that they are concealed from the narrow view of one discipline alone, but whose discovery is vital to solving some of humanity's greatest challenges?

This book explores these questions by bringing together disciplines that have, for the last few hundred years, gone their separate ways. With the help of 'triangulation' and the 'Six Blind Men and the Elephant' fable, it shows how modern research in physics, biology, philosophy, parapsychology and religion can combine to reveal the mega-phenomenon of 'Subspace', an extra dimension to our existence which, if harnessed, could propel humanity into a new age of possibilities.

In bringing the pieces together, the book ultimately leads the reader to some startling propositions and acknowledges the role of the 'outsider' in bringing forward innovation.
