)-- The Little Universe is the first book in the trilogy by author, Jason Matthews. The second book, Jim's Life, is the immediate sequel and is also recently published. The third book is currently being written.
The Little Universe is about a science project, a simulation of The Big Bang on a microscopic level. It's also about a bet between the husband and wife scientists over whether it can be proven that some form of God must exist.
What if you could create a universe - a miniature, self-enclosed universe? Imagine having probing cameras that could focus to any star or planet looking for life. And once you found life, what if you could accelerate time and watch it evolve? What might you find? Primordial soup. Strange beings. Alien societies. Profound wisdom.These are not the questions Jon Gruber ponders as he pedals to his next carpentry job. Over thirty, unmarried, he doesn't even own a car. But a new assignment challenges him to rethink his place in the world. Is he a loser? Or is he about to become a partner in an experiment of phenomenal discovery? Webster Adams, Jon's client, astronomer, inventor, performs such an experiment. To Webster's amazement, he finds planets and cultures beyond his wildest dreams. His little universe turns into a discovery machine - an overnight goldmine. He and his crew observe societies that evolve so far past them on levels of technology and spirituality, that the world will be forever changed. Webster's lovely daughter, Whitney, also overwhelms Jon. She opens his eyes to the deeper meanings within the experiment - to the divine nature and connectedness of all life, by finding the most advanced beings within the project - the spirit guides from Theta 7. The Big Bang is a God-game at multiple levels. For Webster Adams, one question immediately comes to light. "If I can create a universe," he wonders, "then who created ours?" The debate between evolution and creation is the subtle undertone throughout Webster's story. Can it be proven that God exists? Or is life a random, free-flowing evolution with no design? Along with Jon, you, the reader, will be presented a new perspective on life and your role in the great mystery of the universe.
