These are my thoughts on the book – The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown.
Does god exist? Or does man have the power of god? These are some of the questions raised in the book The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown. The book talks about a man’s search for ancient mysteries and hidden secrets that unfold and reveal the word that has the power to transform man into god. It would be catastrophic if the secret falls in the wrong hands. Hence the secret has been hidden in religious books and protected by certain sects like the Masonic brothers since centuries.
There are theories in an ancient branch of Physics known as Noetic Science, which may not be proven but may well have logic behind them; for example the ability of thought converting to matter. The power of group thoughts can make things happen; e.g. group prayers. A man healing people through touch is nothing but an example of how powerful thoughts can be.
The book is not only a thriller with its unexpected twists but is also one that puts across novel thought provoking ideas in the mind of an intelligent reader.
