Author and evolutionary philosopher Brian Thomas Swimme shares his infectious curiosity about life's biggest questions and our role as humans in this awe-inspiring universe. Written by Swimme and historian of religions Mary Evelyn Tucker, and directed by Patsy Northcutt and David Kennard, this documentary weaves a tapestry that draws together scientific discoveries in astronomy, geology, biology, ecology, and biodiversity with humanistic insights concerning the nature of the universe. Using his skills as a masterful storyteller, Swimme connects such big picture issues as the birth of the cosmos to the invisible frontiers of the human genome, as well as to our current impact on Earth's evolutionary dynamics.
