Dear Michael–  


Thank you for the eloquent and poetic quotations from Thomas Berry! I agree with and celebrate his insights and artistry.  


I have not purposefully used language in opposition with mainstream science. My interest is straightforward: Look at the attributes of living systems and ask whether those are attributes of our universe.


To me, the evidence points increasingly in the direction of aliveness and this has truly enormous implications for the foundational nature of reality and the human journey.


With love, gratitude, and Thanksgiving blessings to you and Connie (and all others on this thread),
