Searching with Pei For the Meaning of Life, a work of speculative fiction based on scientific fact. Vacationer Eric Purcell makes his way to Sun Yat-sen Park in upland Maui, seeking answers to his angst about the meaning of life. He encounters a quiet Chinese retiree who introduces himself as Chi, Pei-sheng. As they stand looking down over Maui Bay, Pei remarks that Eric has found a place of power that Pei often visits from his nearby villa. Thus begins a shared journey that leads the two seekers to examine the latest scientific findings of quantum physics, Oriental teachings and philosophy, how the evolution of the eye made human existence possible, and how our universe is one of many emanating from the Multiverse. As the journey unfolds, Eric realizes he is pursuing answers to two questions, not one:

-Why does the Universe manifest and support consciousness in the form of human life?

-What is the meaning of life for each of us as an individual?
