Brian Thomas Swimme - Host:
This story has the power to awaken us more deeply to who we are. For just as the Milky Way is the universe in the form of a flower, we are the universe in the form of a human. And every time we are drawn to look up in the night sky and reflect on the awesome beauty of the universe, we are actually the universe reflecting on itself. And this changes everything.

Journey of the Universe is a truly wonderful film which everyone should see! It introduces viewers to the deep theological and philosophical questions regarding the role of humanity within our current scientifically-based understanding of evolutionary cosmology.
This sounds "heavy" but in a light-handed way, host Brian Swimme guides the audience through some of the most profound themes and questions while spending a single day on the Greek island of Samos (home of Pythagoras).
Where do we come from? How did evolution result in humanity's rise to planetary dominance and exploitation? How are we connected to Earth and Universe? What is the way forward for the human species? All these questions are raised without giving dogmatic answers and engaging the viewers to think for themselves about the issues raised.
All this in a 56 minute documentary - brilliant! I'd give this an 11 out of 10 if I could. Highly recommended!
