Quotes

Himself - Host: This story has the power to awaken us more deeply to who we are. For just as the Milky Way is the universe in the form of a flower, we are the universe in the form of a human. And every time we are drawn to look up in the night sky and reflect on the awesome beauty of the universe, we are actually the universe reflecting on itself. And this changes everything.

The story that has the power to change our world
25 July 2012 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Who are we as humans here in Earth? How did we get to be here? What is our relationship to everything else? What implications does this have for future generations? These are questions human beings have asked since we first came to conscious awareness of ourselves. This film is an opportunity to think again about these questions in the light of current science, to reflect on where we stand in relation to this information. To understand it is to enter into the realisation of the implications for each one of us and to be filled with awe, a new sense of being.Complex ideas are presented in ways that can be understood without a background in science, the scenery is breathtaking and every minute of the film is packed with significance.
