Brian Thomas Swimme, well-known for his Emmy-award winning work on the PBS series Journey of the Universe, has written a new book combining what we know about the development of the universe and the arrival of human consciousness.
Cosmogenesis: An Unveiling of the Expanding Universe is a fresh look at the “collision” between science and spirituality has influenced contemporary consciousness, according to the book’s publisher Counterpoint Press.
Swimme tells the story of the universe, but also aims to offer a glimpse into how ‘cosmogenesis’ has transformed the understanding of both the universe and the evolution of human consciousness itself. He writes that at our core we are cosmological beings.
A professor at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco, Swimme teaches evolutionary cosmology to graduate students in the philosophy, cosmology and consciousness program. He also works with the Human Energy Project to produce the popular YouTube series The story of the Noosphere. He is also the author of The Universe Is a Green Dragon, The Universe Story written with Thomas Berry and The Hidden Heart of the Cosmos.
