Someday after we have mastered the winds, the waves, the tides, and gravity, we shall harness … the energies of love. Then for the second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.
—Teilhard de Chardin
“Seamlessness” is the introduction to Brian Swimme’s 2005 epic video The Powers of the Universe. For many of us this video was our introduction to the New Story and it is still a compelling introduction to the concept of non-duality.
Brian Thomas Swimme is a professor at the California Institute of Integral Studies, in San Francisco, where he teaches evolutionary cosmology to graduate students in the Philosophy, Cosmology, and Consciousness program. His most recent work includes the video “The Journey of the Universe.”
“Few are better than Brian Swimme in teaching how contemporary science can enable us to shift our view of the universe and ourselves, and potentially how we live together. Don’t be deceived, The Powers of the Universe, is not just about the stars and galaxies but the universal forces that are within us, individually and collectively, if we become courageous enough to start to work with them.”
