Inspired by science and the wisdom of indigenous and mystical traditions
Thank you for supporting our workshop—Telling a Better Story—in last week’s Undercurrent.
Just to clarify: It’s true that I’m not in favour of certain achievements of science, namely the atom bomb, plastic, and others connected to the military-industrial agenda.
However, I am a great admirer of current scientific research in physics, cosmology and neurobiology that speaks to the interdependence and interrelationship of everything in the universe, and I continue to be impressed and supported by Paul’s scientific knowledge. Since our association 10 years ago with physicist, Brian Swimme, we have been engaged in communicating the cosmological story based on evolutionary science, and my musical, Voices in the Sound, about Bowen Island, is a marriage of science and local history.
My book, Becoming Intimate with the Earth, to be published by Collins Foundation Press in the U.S. in a few months, has been inspired by science, as well as the wisdom of indigenous and mystical traditions, and my own love for the earth.
I want to make it clear that I’m no science hater, just interested in keeping science honest and ethical and relevant to the needs of the whole earth community.
