Overview
Walker s erudition is astounding there is very little of intellectual interest that is not covered by this book, and she provides one of the most accessible introductions to chaos theory available. -Kirkus Reviews

Matter Over Mind begins with a thought-provoking journey through the Cosmos to illustrate the startling contrast between nature's chaotic but rich processes, and the human mind's organized but underperforming habits. This book reveals how humanity could achieve even greater heights if we allow ourselves to rethink how we think.

Chaos theory, which is wonderfully explained in this book, is a foundational recipe in nature and large group behavior. Abstract thinking is the opposite force that leads to frustrating inconsistencies in society and even limitations in technology. Viewing the world through both lenses illuminates the deeper dynamics of the world and a better way forward for humanity.

Elaine Walker is an electronic musician with a deep interest in philosophy and chaos theory. Being raised by two loving mathematics professors provided her with a natural appreciation for mathematics. Her Masters thesis at New York University was on using chaos dynamics to compose and perform music. Elaine has regularly volunteered for the NewSpace community, promoting the idea of humans living in space. She spent five summers in the High Arctic on the NASA Haughton-Mars Project. She is a proponent of longevity and a member of the cryonics organization, Alcor.
