Talk: Journey of the Universe

The discoveries of modern science tell a comprehensive epic story of the universe through fourteen billion years of evolution. Brian will tell this amazing story from the birth of the universe to the history of planet Earth to the stages of hominin evolution. While this account will certainly be in contention with older cultural narratives, it could ultimately lead to positive effects for future human evolution. Brian will point to some of the epic’s long term consequences for humanity as a whole.
