about this item

"Captain Paul K. Chappell has given us a crucial look at war and peace from the unique perspective of a soldier, and his new ideas show us why world peace is both necessary and possible in the 21st century."--Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate

The Cosmic Ocean shares the treasures that Paul K. Chappell, a West Point graduate and Iraq War veteran who grew up in a violent household, has extracted from trauma. To explain how these treasures---which take the form of timeless truths---can help us solve our personal, national, and global problems, this book uses personal stories and extensive research to journey through time, around the world, and into every facet of the human condition

To survive and progress as a global human family, Chappell explains that we need a paradigm shift that can transform our understanding of peace, justice, love, happiness, and what it means to be human. To help create this paradigm shift, The Cosmic Ocean explores diverse subjects such as empathy, rage, nonviolent struggle, war, beauty, religion, philosophy, science, Gandhi, the Iliad, slavery, human sacrifice, video games, sports, and our shared humanity
