    From Mecca to Metadata

    As Morgan showed in Lost History, issued in 2007, how the modern world owes to the unremembered Arab Muslim thinkers, he highlights the radically developed theories of mathematicians, astronomers, biologists, chemists, doctors and others. Thousand years ago, thinkers predicted, unexpectedly, the 21st century thought in areas such as natural selection of species, creation of artificial life, emerging theories of time and space, psychotherapy, theories of human consciousness and the fusion of art with high mathematics and modern space-time theory.
    The author chronicles and analyzes these rapid developments in early Islamic science and thought. He then questions how these intellectual breakthroughs have gone so far outside the familiar frame of modern intellectual freedom, innovation and modernism. How are the frameworks of Western and Islamic scientific thought intertwined? What are the lessons learned from early Islamic fiction that can be applied to modern science and discovery?
