Science opens the door …

Science opens the door for Us.  It’s time we came Inside.

Yes.  “We are the Universe,” and we’re-all-connected-in-it-and-through it.  ‘It’s in us’ and ‘we’re in it.’  Not in any goofy new age way or pantheistic sense, but in a much more tangible, spiritually meaningful way.  A much more profound and deeper way that monist religion could ever offer us as human beings.  This is our inspiration!  The stuff that drives poets, artists, and philosophers to expound on life’s wonders.  Yet what a wonder it is!  Even our arts and humanities don’t compare with it.  Science and mathematics alone has charted this poetry for us.  All we can do now is to journal our experiences of it, and that’s where the rest of human knowledge comes in, especially in the humanities.  Science isn’t shoving these other disciplines aside; it’s inviting us to explore the universe in a whole new way and think about these other fields in a whole new way also.  No, literature, art, and philosophy aren’t debunked in an age of scientific thought.  But they are recast.  It’s our job now to more effectively use them to capture and express the fullness of our experiences.  Science has opened the door for us; it’s time we set about remodeling and redecorating the households of our lives around it.  For there we will find our purposes in life, “purposes we create” with the stylus of ‘living’ and ‘expressing ourselves’ as human beings.

Our purpose, our mission, our inspiration.  That’s what science gives us.

What’s better than a bunch of individual videos narrated by Lawrence Krauss, Neil deGrasse Tyson, and Carl Sagan? One epic video with all three of them. Check it out:
