You can hardly do better than join cosmologist Ervin Laszlo in the ultimate quest: for a theory of everything. Harris Stone, Ed.

Science and the Akashic Field: An Integral Theory of Everything
Our human body is made up of many such levels, each formed by another jump in complexity. Our lowest level of the cell jumps up a level to body tissue, to body organ, to body system and to the whole body. We are therefore formed with many onion skin like levels that all cooperate in complex ways to make one whole human being. It is really amazing how it all fits together. At the same time, in the human realm of consciousness, we are - as far as we know - the only creatures able to contemplate who we are, why we are here and how we fit into the universe. This coherence also allows evolution to happen and that has enabled us to evolve from a microscopic bacterium right through to the complex beings that we are with all our mental, physical, emotional and spiritual capabilities.
