pulchra es, amica mea = you are beautiful, my beloved
— Song of Solomon

Kind friends,
We live today in a world far beyond what our ancestors would consider magic - a world now of GPS and jet planes, computers and DNA. Our ancestors’ stoneage worldview from thousands of years ago - gods and angels, demons and unicorns, is no longer meaningful to many of us.

Sometime ago,  
friends dissatisfied with society's religions asked me to help them build a new worldview.
By surveying the science of the last 500 years, since Columbus sailed, 
and combining our experiences - from scientist and priest to atheist and musician,
We found that the meaning of life was not a secret hidden somewhere, but lies inside each of us.

The meaning comes from you, only you. 
                              Only you can assign the meaning of your life.


And now, as I promised so long ago, here begins our story - the story of the humans:


Beginning in:

<<< Kenya 1,500,000 BC


Reaching today:            

Moon 1969 AD >>>

Come, my friends,  ’Tis not too late to seek a newer world.

Come, my friends,

’Tis not too late to seek a newer world.

Push off, and sitting well in order smite

The sounding furrows; for my purpose holds

To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths

Of all the western stars, until I die.

It may be that the gulfs will wash us down:

It may be we shall touch the Happy Isles,

And see the great Achilles, whom we knew.

Tho’ much is taken, much abides; and tho’

We are not now that strength which in old days

Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;

One equal temper of heroic hearts,

Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will

To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

          —  Tennyson.   .   .
