Biologist Elisabet Sahtouris says “Life gets creative in a time of crisis.” Philosopher and cosmologist Thomas Berry tells us, “If we can’t see the stars at night, it’s not just pollution or toxicity of the planet, it’s a loss of our soul, our imagination, of the experience of what it is to be a human being.” Another cosmologist Brian Swimme suggests that a new story of the universe may come to serve the modern world as primitive myths served in their time, embracing modern scientific knowledge as well as ancient spiritual concepts. And professor of natural philosophy, Paul Davies, stimulates our imagination when he says that “Matter is far more nebulous and mysterious than we thought.” Prepare to be amazed, inspired, and enlivened by these four profound interviews specially selected from the New Dimensions program library.
