George Land and Beth Jarman give us a stunning new take on the science vs. spirituality debate. They begin by demolishing a sacred cow of physics: “entropy,” the idea that the universe is irreversibly headed toward a whimpering “heat death.” Using rigorous scientific methods, they show that the universe isn’t falling apart after all – it’s getting better, all the time!

 

What does all this science have to do with spirituality? Everything! Land and Jarman label nature’s impulse for overcoming entropy and pulling us into the future “Creative Connecting.” A force as scientifically real as gravity, and more worthy of “reverence” than any god described by religion. Think of your deepest moments of spirituality: watching a sunset, being moved by music … That feeling you experience is “being at one with the universe” – in other words, “connecting.”

 

You don’t have to abandon science to be truly spiritual – you just have to get it right. And you don’t have to abandon your spiritual side to live your life according to empirical reality – you just have to revere the force in nature that really exists.
