The Epic of Evolution is a story of the story. It is compelling, it is gripping, it is moving, and it has potentially unitive power. The new synthesis is an understanding that traditional religions are necessary but not sufficient to move to a macrophase of wisdom... There is power in this new story to evoke awe through a deeper understanding of process. There is power in this story to elicit identification through profound resonance with pattern -to nurture a deep feeling that matter matters. And there is power in this story to catalyze action through greater awareness of the processes of change.
