As reconstructive postmodernism has matured, the project of reconstructing a postmodern worldview, after the collapse of the modern one, has become the project of reconstructing a postmodern grand narrative. A narrative is, and is unapologetically so, a mere story. A narrative makes no claim to be the unvarnished truth, makes no claim on certainty; it is a self confessed representation, and nothing more. A narrative may be characterized as 'grand' when it tells a comprehensive story, a story that, when most comprehensive, includes everything. Theologian Thomas Berry and physicist Brian Swimme have collaborated to compose The Universe Story. They have been joined by astronomer Eric Chaisson, comparativist Mary Evelyn Tucker, philosopher Loyal Rue, theologian Gordon Kaufman, among others, to compose an epic of cosmic evolution as a grand narrative on the order of, and addressing the same problematics as, Genesis, the Theogony, the Enuma Elish, the Hawaiian Kumulipo, and similar traditional origin myths.
