From the cover: “What does it mean to be human, to live on planet Earth, in the universe as it is now understood? In The Hidden Heart of the Cosmos best-selling author and mathematical cosmologist Brian Swimme takes us on a journey through the cosmos in search of the “new story” that is developing in answer to this age-old question. The Hidden Heart of the Cosmos opens up not only the exhilarating truths that science reveals of the birth of the universe, but how these truths can transform our lives. Following the most recent scientific discoveries about the origins and nature of the universe, The Hidden Heart of the Cosmos shows how these new insights replace outmoded ways of seeing the world, bridging the chasm between science and spirituality, the physical realm and the soul. As Swimme contends, “It is simply not human to live a life sealed off from all conscious contact with those powers at work throughout the Earth and universe and within every one of our cells”. In such a view the cosmos appears as awesome and meaningful, its dynamics revelatory, and in this revelation can be found the wisdom humanity needs to face and overcome its present crises, particularly the soul-numbing consumerism that threatens to overwhelm not only individuals, families or societies, but the Earth itself. The Hidden Heart of the Cosmos helps us to grasp the larger significance of the human enterprise in this evolving universe. Upon meeting that challenge rests much of the vitality of Earth community, and the future quality of life, for us and our children.”
