The present work proposes a tour from quantum physics to genetic engineering, going through us and a little further. It is a subtle and deep ride that dives into mankind’s biggest mysteries. The proposal is to present scientific knowledge through an accessible language, worthy of a science fiction author. However, the author uses his academic knowledge to approach the subject with seriousness, in which the theoretical base is the fruit of an extensive research aiming to bring updated information, supported by renowned books and articles. In a beautiful fusion of the complicated and the subtle, the objective is to simply challenge you to think about everything and the anti-everything, through an unusual and surprising plot. Some of the approached subjects: Fundamental forces, Theory of Everything, space-time, multiverse, string theory, M theory, Big Bang, general and special relativity, DNA, genetic engineering, chemical weapons, heredity, stem cells, genetic enhancement, cloning, programed death, telomerase, antimatter, dark matter, dark energy, quantum mechanics, double slit experiment, quantum leap, quantum entanglement, quantum teleportation, chemical evolution, RNA world, panspermia, God and us.
