CONTENTS:
Continuum is an interdisciplinary work, showing how the various "subjects" in life (physics, music, biology, sociology, mind, body, you name it) are like the fences that are placed over a sweeping and continous pasture to delineate ownership or some other attribute. The pasture is continuous -- a continuum, but the fences are an arbitrary invention.
So are the definitions of the traditional "subjects" we study in schools. Reality is an infinite continuum, and definitions are just as the word itself suggests: "de-infinite," or defined. It's possible, and often amazingly illuminating, to alter the definitions, and like cutting the loaf on a different or compound angle, you can see a new kind of shape to the slice. And often learn things that solve what have been mysteries inherent in our standard viewpoint.
Take this approach, apply it to the grand sweep of evolution, and the understanding of evolution increases.
But Continuum also combines other subjects together, like music, acoustics, society (anthropology), psychology and archeology -- all mixed up into "one" intertwined subject, without the traditional "fences." The result, at least in terms of trying to re-construct the origin of music, has been amply rewarded in the well-reviewed book The Origin of Music, a book which lately has been confirmed and re-confirmed by new archeological finds and current psychological research.
Another mystery is solved in this book -- that of matter and its "properties." This is best explained from an excerpt by the author in answer to a caller on a radio talk show:

A further excerpt from Continuum, called Evolution of the Social Brain, deals with the main thesis in Continuum. Is the earth a living being, as a whole? Are we developing a social planetary organ of thought? Is there any evidence for this?
