Dr. Brian Swimme thinks deeply about the universe and its evolution. His research focuses on the evolutionary dynamics of the universe, the relationship between scientific cosmology and more traditional religious visions, the cultural implications of the new evolutionary epic, and the role of humanity in the unfolding story of Earth and cosmos. He has presented his ideas in three books: The Universe Story, The Hidden Heart of the Cosmos, and The Universe as a Green Dragon. His ideas are also in three videos: The Earth's Imagination, Canticle to the Cosmos, and The Hidden Heart of the Cosmos. A core faculty member at the California Institute of Integral Studies, he founded the Center for the Story of the Universe there and the international Epic of Evolution Society.
