Love Them Back to LIFE: A Brain Theory of Everything 
by Ariane Page

To face this century's challenges, we need to reconnect with our inner gods, say theorist André Malraux and psychoanalyst Carl Gustav Jung. Love Them Back to LIFE explains why this is essential. She takes us into the heart of the intuitive, forgotten model on which most traditions were built. This is Nature’s model. She shows the journey humans embark upon at birth and through evolution, unfolding this model echoed by the human brain. Science is about to discover it. This will trigger a paradigm shift and alter our perception of genders, nature, love and life.

“A vibrant, eclectic sojourn into the meaning of it all...”—Kirkus Reviews

This is the story of Jill Stevens, who after moving back home, finds a list she made in high school of thirty things she wanted to accomplish before her thirtieth birthday.
