Pigeons The Theory of Everything is the true story of one mans quest to find meaning in what appears to be a meaningless world. The first part of the book is an examination of the intermittent new reels of Robert’s life that comprise his memories. These news reels are an eclectic mix of the splendor and wonder of nature juxtapose the horror and graphic violence that became Robert’s life. These stream of conscientiousness news reels are hauntingly beautiful and tragic.

The middle of the book contains a dialog between Robert and his friend Dr. James Tenney. As Robert and James plumb the depths of human existence and knowledge something wonderful begins to happen. From the shattered fragments of Robert’s life and the intermittent news reels of his memories Robert begins to construct a beautiful mosaic. This mosaic of meaning and answers eventually exceeds Robert’s wildest dreams.

Armed with this epiphany of answers Robert becomes obsessed with a new goal of completing the theory of everything, which is the “Holy Grail” of theoretical physics. With Pigeons The Theory of Everything Robert answers the central mysteries of theoretical physics as well as the central mysteries of human existence.

If you have ever wondered if there is a God and what God is, this book is for you. If you have ever agonized over your own mortality and the possibility of not existing forever, this book is for you. If you have ever wondered if anyone would ever answer the ultimate questions of the cosmos and human existence, this book has the answers you are seeking.

For the purpose of the inquiry which I propose to make in this paper, it will not be necessary for me to occupy much of your time in adducing evidence of the nature and extent of the distressed state of the poorer classes in the Highlands of Scotland. I shall therefore quote only one authority.

Doctor Alison, who has been long distinguished for the attention he has given to the subject of pauperism and poor laws in Scotland, in a pamphlet, published in 1850, says:—"Any one, whose duties have frequently brought him into contact with the mass of destitution, disease, and suffering continually flowing into all the great towns of this country, of late years, from Ireland, must be strongly impressed with the importance of means being taken to correct that evil at its source."

He then adds this important passage:—"And any one who has attended to the state of the lower orders in the greater part of the Highlands, must be aware that it is hardly better than in Ireland, and that the evils which have been only averted there by the large fund raised by voluntary subscription, and now nearly expended, are again nearly as imminent as before."

To account for this distress, many of the theories put forward with respect to Ireland have been urged with more or less favour in Scotland; such as, the Celtic race, the potato, absenteeism, overpopulation, and want of capital.

As, however, the Highlanders are an agricultural population, before adopting any of these solutions of the question, it seems natural to inquire what is the state of agriculture in the districts where this distress prevails. This inquiry is the more important, as in other parts of Scotland prosperous agriculture is attended, as we might expect, by a total absence of general distress.

In going from the well-cultivated districts of Scotland to the Highlands, the most striking difference, respecting the agriculture, is the inferiority of the farm buildings, There is a prevalence of weeds, and the crops have a slovenly and irregular appearance. On inquiring as to the mode of cultivation adopted, it turns out that rotation of crops is irregularly pursued, that economizing of manure is generally neglected, and that thorough drainage, until the recent crisis, was almost unknown.

The first part of the book is an examination of the intermittent new reels of Robert’s life that comprise his memories. These news reels are an eclectic mix of the splendor and wonder of nature juxtapose the horror and graphic violence that became Robert’s life.
