uthor Bio

Mr Mather-Lees is married with two grown daughters. He was educated in England at Cambridge and holds an MA in Mechanical Sciences. He has been a career engineer since the 1970s, and is widely experienced in computer technology and software. He has a long time interest in the mind, space travel, science fiction, cosmology, philosophy, and comparative religion.


There is today a conjunction of four things: -

  •         The rate of progress in biotechnology.
  •          The rapid growth of knowledge in general.
  •          It is clear that there are many other intelligent races in our Galaxy, mostly more advanced than us.
  •          Our minds have much more power than we presently know how to use.

These lead to the conclusion that we will quite soon (a hundred years or so) be able to bio-engineer beings like ourselves, starting with lower forms of life. There seem to be beings out there that already have that capability, hence we ourselves have likely been bio-engineered.

The book calls conventional evolution theory into question, and instead offers 'Assisted Evolution'. This provides an interesting new slant on “Intelligent Design”, with a much more credible (and verifiable) approach.

The idea of Assisted Evolution is not to set aside Darwin's Theory.  But, in our case at least, it probably had some help. Help not from a divine source, but from a race more advanced than us, with an agenda that led to a design for us that is a lot less than optimal.
