The narrator of Nebula Maker stands on a hill and sees a vision that leads him to the birth of the universe. He witnesses the creation of the nebulae and the formation of galactic communities as well as the flowering of the personalities of the nebulae. Four Encounters describes the imaginary meetings of the author with individuals who represent four distinct world views. The Christian and the Mystic personify older outlooks, that of organized Western religion and the spirit of renunciation, respectively. The Scientist and the Revolutionary embody views that are more contemporary.
