WAHROONGA, Australia Howard Dimond continues his exploration of the cosmos with a mixture of discovery, romance and insightfulness in his fourth novel, By Accident or Design: Unscrambling Newtons Code (published by Xlibris AU). Dimond continues the unique and inquisitive story of Michael, his wife Janet and Michaels great friend, Oats. On a scientific quest to objectively discover the beginnings of humanity within the earths planetary past, the trio takes the enlightened approach from an extremely advanced society, which questions our accepted and fl awed theories and asks: Why is it so? Michael, Janet and Oats question key aspects of humanitys history on Earth through which they discover a positive, unifying way forward, and with it a more hopeful future for the human race. Darwins fl awed theories, while having created many early, positive discussions have also seen some adverse and unintended consequences in humanitys progress as a result, Dimond says. With this compelling revision of critical parts of our history and its consequences, it makes this novel essential to us all. By Accident or Design gives readers an easy-to-understand examination of what gives humanity hope, encouragement and purpose in life and the future. By taking an original look at where inspirational enlightenment on Earth has floundered, Dimond offers an innovative approach on how it can be rediscovered and recaptured for the overall betterment of the world today. I would hope that readers learn to question our history and our past more closely and that every human soul who feels characterized by their color, may they find comfort, encouragement and a sense of peace in these findings, Dimond says.
