Best known for his top-selling work The Sirius Mystery, he has written books on Chinese science, ancient Egyptian wisdom, and the baffling astronomical knowledge of the Dogon people of West Africa.

In his latest book, A New Science of Heaven, Temple explores a topic on the scientific vanguard—plasma.

A gas composed of positive ions and free electrons, plasma makes up 99 percent of the matter of the universe. This interview, with Quest magazine editor Richard Smoley, will delve into this fascinating and provocative theme, including its implications for the human biome and esoteric ideas about the etheric body. Temple’s picture of plasma will overturn your current view of the universe.
