"The same dynamics that created the galaxies created the stars and the oceans. The powers that build the universe are ultimately mysterious, issuing forth from and operating out of mystery. They are the most awesome and numinous reality in the universe. Humans are these dynamics, brought into self-awareness, becoming now fully aware of our creative work. We already have these powers in the forms of stars, mountains, atoms, and elephants, but we do not yet have them in human form. We are probing still, exploring, experimenting. Having only just arrived on this planet, we are still learning what it means to become fully human."
from Dr. Brian Swimme's book, "The Universe is a Green Dragon"
