Sometime ago, I read a report of a young ten-or-eleven year old boy, who, after being exposed to continuing newspaper and television reports about the fighting going on all over the Middle East, involving Christians, Muslims and Jews, remarked:
“Maybe we need a new religion.”
This book is about the roots and myths of the current religions much of the world still lives under - religions which were born in an older and different time, whose dream-worlds have been shattered by the rise of science.
But it is also about a new and utterly empowering vision of ourselves, as co-creators and participants at one with the very heart of the universe itself.
Beyond the old myths, beyond atheism even, a vision of the true relation of our lives to the cosmos around us - a vision now supported by the most cutting-edge revelations of science.
Who are we? Why are we here?
These are the age-old questions.
Now it’s time for a new religion.
