First Light, Intrinsic Unity at the Dawn of Time

en Limba Engleză Paperback – 16 iul 2014
First Light launches the Grand Universal Lineage sequence. It explores the dawn of time and how various civilizations that are relevant for us have sought to understand the origin of all. A brief primer on scientific method then helps us appraise science's best and most convincingly verified creation theory-the Big Bang. We visit some fun facts about our universe, explore some alternative views, and draw important implications from what they tell us. Most importantly, we see why the deep appraisal of such cosmic insights matters. Implicit here is the Oneness perspective that underlies this entire series of volumes, which I enthusiastically believe will help us all move toward a vibrant, healed future. The essence of the unity vision that drives this broader and powerful healing impulse is here. ENDORSEMENTS FROM BILL MCKIBBEN & OTHER GLOBAL LEADERS "We are in a tremendous fix. We burn a lot of coal and gas and oil on a daily basis in this world-as a result, the atmospheric concentration of co2 has zoomed past the maximum safe level of 350 parts per million, and now nudges 400 ppm. As a result, the Arctic, and most of the other ice on the planet, is melting swiftly; as a result, the oceans are 30% more acidic than they were a generation ago; as a result, we see a steady and devastating increase in both flood and drought. This is the first truly global problem that we've ever faced. The sources of the trouble aren't found everywhere-many people on earth burn little or no fossil fuel-but the effects can now be found in every corner of the planet. In fact, many of the hardest hit places are ones that have done little to cause the crisis. Big crises can lead to big, powerful changes. Let's hope we can make that happen here " -From the Foreword by Bill McKibben, Founder of "Your email series is so great- I love the positivity and hopefulness of the project. The issues we collectively face are so grave, but that doesn't by any stretch mean that positivity and hopefulness aren't appropriate. In fact, I think it's the opposite - that the urgent issues of our time demand the most positivity we can muster. Prima Mundi is clearly going to help establish that path, and give people a way to express their willingness to hope and to help." -Madeline Cantwell, Director of Development, The Orion Society (Orion Magazine) "Lee Temple is a modern day renaissance man. His command of so many fields such as cosmology, science, philosophy, psychology, spirituality, ecology and systems thinking is truly impressive. He puts all this knowledge together in a lyrical, informative and practical presentation designed to provide us with all we need to make informed choices and take wise action to save our planet. His mapping has a moral imperative: we must transform our consciousness and act." -James O'Dea, author of Cultivating Peace: Becoming a 21st Century Peace Ambassador
