Description

Today’s episode features the power of Transformation --  the process through which change is worked into the whole context by the individual. 

In this podcast, Brian discusses how the universe engages in space-time binding to create increasingly complex structures that transform that universe as a whole.  Each new and more complex structure is understood to be a transformative event where space and time fold back on itself and more of the universe is present in one place.

Brian traces the evolution of transformation throughout the history of the universe, beginning with the emergence of physical structures such as atoms, stars, galaxies, and planets.  These structures transform the universe such that life and memory can come forth.  As life grows and evolves, Earth itself is transformed, enabling the planet to support increasingly complex forms of life.  With the arrival of humans, the power of transformation is brought to new levels through our capacity to engage in symbolic consciousness.  

The history and evolution of the power of transformation gives us insight into what the universe is all about.  The universe is aiming to transform itself over and over again so that the universe as a whole can participate directly in the evocation of community.  Earth, our vibrant, intense, and complex home can thus be understood as a place where community has the potential to thrive and as a robust expression of the power of transformation. 

We hope you enjoy the Journey.
