“The story of the Universe is the epic unfolding of the world, an evolutionary tale of awesome scope. It speaks of unity and diversity, of desire and curiosity, of wonder and awe. It speaks of creativity and imagination, of death, destruction and transformation. It is the story of science. It is the story of spirit.”

Everyone has a life story. Cultures too have stories about how the world and its creatures came into being. We call those ‘mere myths’ but had nothing to put in their place until science gave us the contemporary story of our Universe. This book retells that awesome story, the span of which covers billions of years of evolution, and considers its implications for the future development of human consciousness.

The Universe Story in Science and Myth is the third title in the GreenSpirit Book Series, which is a low-cost series sold at production price only.

His fascination with the story of the Universe was kindled when he watched Brian Swimme’s “Canticle to the Cosmos” in the early 1990s. Since 2009 he has been teaching the Universe Story in the form of a scaled walk in which each metre represents a million years in time. Further details can be found at www.universewalk.co.uk.
