The Invisible Pyramid

The Friends of the Criss Library hosted a discussion of The Invisible Pyramid.

His books include The Immense Journey, The Firmament of Time and The Unexpected Universe. The Invisible Pyramid, written in 1970, describes the rise of man as an organism devouring his environment and polluting his world space.
