We're sorry. This audio clip is no longer available. A transcript has been made available.

Acclaimed Caltech physicist Leonard Mlodinow and spiritual leader Deepak Chopra are both bestselling authors.

Now they're exchanging ideas in their new book, "War of the Worldviews: Science vs. Spirituality."

On Midday Edition (audio on left), Chopra and Mlodinow discuss some of their thoughts about what they deem are the most important questions humans can possibly answer. Among them: How did the universe emerge? What is life? What makes us human? Is God an illusion?

All of these questions are discussed and dissected from the often opposing viewpoints of science and spirituality in their book.
