About this title


Do the universe, life, and human societies have a purpose? Science in the past century has made giant advances in astrophysics, anthropology, neuroscience, and genetics. It has revealed that the universe—including life—has increased in form, organization, and complexity. This self-development has progressed contrary to the Second Law of Thermodynamics, which predicts progressive disorganization.

In The Self-Creating Universe, Dr. David Alkek shares his basic themes to help explain the concept of the unfinished universe, what he calls “ipsa-creation.” He examines the abundant evidence of how astronomy, physics, biology, anthropology, and sociology have increased in complexity, form, and organization and explores the reasons for this increase. But most importantly, Alkek points out the fact that science is confronted with philosophic questions, prompting him to call for a new paradigm—a Law of Increasing Complexity—for science, philosophy, and religion.

Backed by solid research, Alkek proves that the universe, life, and human societies do indeed have innate purpose as part of a universal reality.
