Seminar: The New Cosmology- # 60002
Instructor: Larry Edwards, Ph.D
Faculty Bio: Larry Edwards, Ph.D., is a chemical-physicist and author of many scientific articles as well as a contributor to Arab Resources: The Transformation of a Society. He is a cosmologist and co-founder of the Epic of Evolution Society. Currently Larry teaches at the University of Creation Spirituality, California Institute of Integral studies, University of San Francisco, and Genesis Farm. He is also developing The Earth Story Project, a multi-media presentation of the Universe Story.
Course Description: This course will cover the story of the Universe from its initial flaring forth fourteen billion years ago, through the emergence and evolution of Earth life, and the evolution of human self-reflective awareness. Implicit in this story is a vision of an emerging era of Earth as sacred community.
We will explore a functional cosmology, that is, a cultural context in which all life can function in a meaningful manner. Central to this exploration will be the adoption of a new identity, simultaneously part of and integral with the whole Earth, an identity congruent with recent discoveries of the elegance and intelligence of the Universe process.
Pre-Class Writing Assignment: List and describe briefly (5-8 pages) five events chronicled in The Universe Story, from each of the four main periods, galactic, Earth life, human emergence to the classical civilizations, and modern human. Of these twenty or so descriptions, expand on one and relate it to your own spiritual journey.
Post-Class Writing Assignment: Write a short (5-15 page) paper answering the question, "How has Story affected my life?"
