About the Author

Gregory Sams has been changing the culture from the age of 19, when he cofounded SEED, the UK's first natural and organic restaurant in 1960's London. It led to Ceres Grain store, where customers could buy these foods to cook at home. Within a few years he had created the nation's first natural and organic food enterprises, including Whole Earth Foods. He was founder publisher of Harmony Magazine, to which John Lennon dedicated an eightframe cartoon, and copublished Seed, the Journal of Organic Living. In 1982 he created and christened the original VegeBurger, initiating the market for vegetarian food. In 1990 he founded Strange Attractions, the world's only shop ever dedicated to new science "chaos theory." His interest in that science planted the seeds of this book in Gregory's mind. Visit Sams at He lives in London. Graham Hancock is the author of the international bestsellers The Sign and The Seal, Fingerprints of the Gods, and Heaven's Mirror. His books have sold more than five million copies.


Modern science has confirmed a belief held by many ancient cultures: solar activity is closely linked with human behavior. Moreover, Gregory Sams asserts that the Sun is endowed with intelligence and consciousness. In the brilliantly articulated chapters of this remarkable book, he also provides a provocative paradigm for understanding the selforganizing capacities of the entire Universe.

Simply one of the wisest, most lucid, and thoughtfully written books that I've ever read on spirituality. Gregory Sams illuminates and clarifies my vague intuition about the cosmos being a living organism, and adds flesh to my childhood hunch that every aspect of the universe is imbued with spirit. An unusually insightful and wellintegrated exploration of the origins of religion and the evolution of consciousness that radically refreshes our view of the world.

Sun of gOd presents a perfectly outrageous hypothesis: The sun is a conscious, living organism residing in a thriving galactic community, thinking stellar thoughts that span the entire universe. Surely this is nonsense. Except that the more you read the more a conscious universe begins to make sense. Gregory Sams' book is a clearly written and persuasively reasoned argument to think about the sun in a radically new and refreshing way. Dean Radin, PhD, Senior Scientist, Institute of Noetic Sciences-- "Reviews"
I was prepared to dislike this book. The sun is a conscious being. what a preposterous notion! Yet if you are prepared to entertain this peculiar hypothesis, Gregory Sams will entertain you with unusual and engaging justifications for an apparently preposterous hypothesis. Someday when scientists are able to directly connect with nonhuman consciousnesses, they may discover that the sun is indeed a conscious being, and that Gregory Sams (and numerous cultures of sun worshippers) had anticipated this discovery by purely philosophical means. Nick Herbert, author of Quantum Reality, Faster than Light, and Elemental Mind-- "Reviews"
Gregory Sams' Sun of gOd is one of those most rare books, an unpretentious book of wisdom. On consciousness; on bizarre restrictions and outrageous interpretations loaded on it by profiteering exploiters of humans' instinctive reverence for cosmos' interconnections so brilliantly discovered by courageous astronomers; and, in a revelatory and touching way, on the beauty and sublimity of awareness which manifests in all animals and humans and all artisticscientific revelations of subtle matterenergy transforms. Acute, apt quotations from sages and philosophers alone justify the book. But best of all, Gregory Sams allows us to experience his pellucid perceptions and exhilarating joie de vivre. Be careful! They might be catching. --John Allen, Chairman, Global Ecotechnics and Inventor, Biosphere 2 Project-- "Reviews"
A thousand snorkelstonkers for illuminating my existence with this turbo blasting whizz into the infinite and back. What a monumental rip tide of thought - truly a marvellous book. A page turner...a life enhancing, mind provoking brain tickler...always entertaining and enlightening. --Raja Ram, Musician-- "Reviews"
