|Welcome to our ongoing Journey!
This month we are featuringÂ emergenceÂ — a creative, epochal, and self-assembling power of the universe.
It’s incredible.Â We live in a universe that creates new forms of being as it unfolds in time.Â Yet, the emergence of new ways of being is coupled with challenge.Â The universe must navigate difficult thresholds to cross into new domains.
It may be that we are navigating a threshold between epochs at this very moment.Â It’s hard to say for certain,Â but we do know we are in the midst of transformation.Â Something new will emerge as a result of the radical change we are currently experiencing.
To gain a deeper understanding of the nature of emergence, listen to this month’s podcast from Brian Thomas Swimme’sÂ Powers of the UniverseÂ series.Â In this feature, Brian highlights two examples of emergence in the universe: the creation of carbon and the birth of planet Earth.
With these examples in mind, we can come to know our universe as one that evolves,Â often catalyzedÂ by chaos and disruption, into ever deepening dimensions.
