About The Author

Tom Cahalan qualified as a mechanical engineer in 1974. For the past twelve years he has been researching the interconnection between the universe, life, mind, and human consciousness.

He published Beyond the Horizon: Where Science Finds God in 2012 which describes the creation and structure of the universe and also looks at biological evolution and the development of human consciousness. It explains the interconnection between all aspects of reality, from the source of the universe to life, mind, and human consciousness. Finally, it discusses the influences that religion, politics, and science have on human consciousness and consequently on the world in which we live.

His latest book, Dark Energy and Human Consciousness, explains why selfishness is an innate trait in all human beings and is the source of selfishness, corruption, abuse of power, and greed which dominates in all our political, public service, financial and religious institutions worldwide. It argues, based on scientific concepts, that dark energy is a non-physical force that influences life and is the source of reason, intelligence, compassion, and love. If we acknowledge and nurture this non-physical (dark energy) aspect of our beings, it will bring balance to our minds and move us from selfishness to love, care, and compassion. Finally, it suggests that this is the only path to freedom from selfishness, corruption, abuse of power, and greed; and consequently from poverty, starvation, conflict and war?

Cahalan lives in the town of Clane in County Kildare, Ireland, with his wife. They have five children and one grandson.
