Life, Matter and Their Interactions by Dr. T.D. Singh (H.H. Bhaktisvarupa Damodara Swami). How do we explain consciousness, free will, love, purpose, beauty, etc., which seem to be beyond the mere interaction of biomolecules? And, if life is beyond matter, in what ways does it interact with matter and what laws does it follow? The author draws upon insights from ancient Vedantic texts, to present an alternative view of life beyond molecules.
