The Spokes series begins with Unraveling Reality – an invigorating introduction to the wealth of material presented in the eight books that follow. The Science of Existence explores the universe and the essentials of the natural world. The Web of Life chronicles the wondrous diversity of life. The Elements of Evolution untangles natural history and explains how life adapts. The Ecology of Humans explores the biological interfaces of the human body, including the intelligence system, health and diet. The Echoes of the Mind pivots on people: psychology, beliefs, and relationships, and highlights human societies. The Fruits of Civilization covers the consequences of human endeavors. The Pathos of Politics probes how polity has affected humanity, and how humans may yet survive the abysmal failures of the past and present. The Hub of Being is an exposition on enlightenment.

Enlightening is a short essay which touches upon the nature of existence, and how to live a more fulfilling life. The essay is available here.

In less than 200 years since the Industrial Revolution, humans have flooded the planet with themselves and their wastes. To have any prospect of surviving as a species, more attention must be paid to the web of interconnections that pervade the natural world, and to which we are ultimately subject.

So much natural beauty goes undervalued. We pay it little mind, focused instead on "progress" and "profit," disingenuous guises for disregard of other life, even of our own kind. So much scurry to so little lasting benefit, and such destruction. Our only hope comes in belatedly recognizing what we are as a species, and what steps must be taken to reverse the slide into an uninhabitable Earth.

Spokes of the Wheel paints a comprehensive picture of the natural world, and the artifice which humans have constructed for themselves. In its story arc, Spokes goes to the very nature of reality, and provides a path for living in contentment.

Unraveling Reality is on sale on 27 September 2017. The eight-book Spokes set will be published simultaneously in mid-2018.
