QUESTIONS & ANSWERS about THE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION
Written and illustrated by H. CONSTANCE HILL
1) Is The Most Important Question a children's book?
When I first received the inspiration for it I felt this book was intended for children, especially
since young Alexandra Elizabeth skipped in to share the stage with Doctor Einstein. Although some adults think The Most Important Question is too complex for children - I don't agree with that assessment, believing that each reader receives from the book what is appropriate for his or her age and stage in life - I now realize that this is a child-like book for people of all ages.
Many adult readers after enjoying The Most Important Question find themselves wanting to share and discuss the book with the children in their lives.
2) Is there more to Alexandra Elizabeth than readers might at first think?
Alexandra Elizabeth embodies the innate wisdom of children, which adults do not always appreciate or acknowledge. In The Most Important Question her initiative, openness, patience and, especially, her curiosity, are admired by Doctor Einstein. In the May 2, 1955, issue of Life magazine, Albert Einstein was quoted as saying, "The important thing is not to stop questioning; curiosity has its own reason for existing."
In the book, Alexandra Elizabeth has purposely been left physically undefined so that readers from all backgrounds and cultures can identify with her. This supports the understanding that we are all united in Life.
3) A reader asked, "As I read The Most Important Question I could see in my mind scenes described in the text. Why were these not fully illustrated?"
I feel sure that the spirit of Albert Einstein himself was responsible for this! His thoughts on the subject of imagination have often been quoted: "Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited; imagination encircles the world."
From the initial moments of writing The Most Important Question, I found myself "seeing" with unusual clarity the scenes I was creating with written words. I had an inner understanding that the text was meant to encourage readers to imagine and to visualize what the words suggested in order to strengthen those skills within themselves.
4) Do the whimsical elements in The Most Important Question serve a deeper purpose?
On the day I was inspired to write this book, I remember Alexandra Elizabeth jumping onto the page. As whimsical details began to suggest themselves, I at first attributed them to her delightful influence. These details lightened my energy in an unusual way. Working with
The Most Important Question I came to realize that the whimsy is not only meant to amuse us, but also to bring us "lightness of being." This helps open our hearts so we can reflect deeply upon our individual answers to Albert Einstein's most important question.
5) Many readers feel drawn to the vivid colors of the illustrations as much as to the story. Is there a reason for this?
The illustrations featuring bands in bright, pure-hued color are not only visually vibrant, but healing as well. The colors, sequenced in the same order as in rainbows, also represent the chakras, or spiritual energy centers in the human body. In The Most Important Question they are "scrolled" from page to page which provides a healing flow. Readers need not know this in order to benefit from the subtle balancing of their energy that takes place as they view the art. Nevertheless, this may account for the joy many feel in response to the book. Readers who are too young or no longer able to concentrate on the words of the book, will benefit from the healing energy of the illustrations.
6) How did the image YOUNIVERSE come to be?
While creating the illustrations I awakened one night with the word YOUNIVERSE clearly in my mind. I remember smiling delightedly in the dark as I recognized the perfection of the inspired image.
YOUNIVERSE is at the heart of The Most Important Question, a powerful conceptualization of the friendly universe. It reflects back to us our significance as individuals to the wholeness of life, and reveals how treasured and supported each of us is in the loving scheme of the Universe.
Review of 'The Most Important Question' from the Topanga Messenger
THE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION
By H. CONSTANCE HILL; www.diamondclearvision.com
Albert Einstein believed our answers to
"IS THE UNIVERSE A FRIENDLY PLACE, OR NOT"
have a significant impact on how our individual lives unfold and,
ultimately, determine humanity's destiny. Here in his own words is why:
"If we decide that the universe is unfriendly, then we will use our technology, our scientific discoveries, and our natural resources to achieve safety and power by creating bigger walls to keep out the unfriendliness, and bigger weapons to destroy all that which is unfriendly. And, I believe that we are getting to a place where technology is powerful enough that we may either completely isolate or destroy ourselves as well in this process."
"If we decide that the universe is neither friendly nor unfriendly and that God is essentially "playing dice with the universe," then we are simply victims to the random toss of the dice and our lives have no real purpose or meaning."
"But if we decide that the universe is a friendly place, then we will use our technology, our scientific discoveries, and our natural resources to create tools and models for understanding the universe. Power and safety will come through understanding its workings and its motives."
