Brian Thomas Swimme - 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.

Full disclosure, I happen to be a religious person who enjoys the study of science at every level. I don't see the areas of religion as necessarily opposed to scientific endeavors & often find them to be complementary - at least in my own world view. That being said, in this film - upon arriving at perhaps the biggest mystery we've ever contemplated - the origins of life itself... it landed with a thud. While I certainly didn't expect anything along the lines of a Sunday school class; or frankly anything more than an ever so subtle whisper about what 'some' people may think about the origins of life... this film basically went only so far as to state that on the matter of how life developed on this planet, while not definitely settled, is certainly believed by those in credible circles to have originated from some sort of 'self organizing' aspect of material in general.... that it's in the very nature of stuff to just spring to life as per inevitable... and that there's how it happened - aaaaaanywho,onto the many marvels of this life thing....
Ever read a story to a child while you're in a hurry & have them pipe up and indignantly profess that you 'skipped a page'? Yeah... that's kind of how I felt...
