Duane Elgin on “The Living Universe”–Part 1 & 2



Traditionally, science has regarded the universe as made up of inert matter and empty space. Duane Elgin brings together extraordinary evidence from cosmology, biology and physics to show that the universe is not dead but rather uniquely alive, an insight which, he shows, is in harmony with all of the world’s major spiritual traditions. He explores how this view radically transforms our concept of ourselves, our place in the cosmos, and the evolutionary trajectory of the human family.

The non-living view of the universe has led to rampant materialism and global environmental degradation. To transform our planetary crises we need to move past a paradigm of separation and exploitation and learn to live sustainably on the Earth, in harmony with one another, and in communion with the living universe. We are beings of cosmic connection who are learning to live in a living universe.

Duane Elgin, visionary, speaker, educator and author of numerous books, including the best selling “Voluntary Simplicity,” dropped by the offices of Global MindShift to be interviewed by Richard Rathbun, president and CEO of the Foundation for Global Community, about his new book: “The Living Universe.”
