This Universal Creation Story tells where we came from and how each of us belongs. Scientists from around the globe reveal this 13.8 billion year story of the cosmos, of life on planet Earth and our human journey.
Where are we going? The universe evolves in a general direction toward greater entropy, size, and complexity. On Earth, there is also evolution toward greater cooperation, consciousness and compassion. Evolution's Arrow gives us clues about our future.
"Nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of evolution." ~ Theodosius Dobzhansky. At the heart of biological evolution is DNA, a long double helix threading itself through all of life since our earliest single-celled ancestors emerged 3.5 billion years ago.
Human imagination influences evolution. From the Great Wall of China, to the Earth lit up at night, to climate change, to species selection, human imagination has ushered in the most recent geological age: the Anthropocene. How will your imagination influence the future?
The Evolutionary Epic offers many reasons to celebrate: this map of reality offers a comprehensive context for solving the great challenges facing humanity, it helps us understand better ways to be healthy, and it illuminates a new psychology of happiness that helps us create a flourishing future.
While vacationing in the lush rainforests of Costa Rica, I realized that it was no coincidence that both Darwin and Wallace, pioneers of the theory of evolution by natural selection, had traveled extensively in the lush and biodiverse tropics. See slide show of biodiverse tropics.
