The Human Universe explores the limits of objectivity within an ultimately subjective context. The Human Universe discusses humanity's natural inclination towards ideologies and warns of certain confusion in the folly of second-hand belief. In the absence of learned beliefs, we begin to recontextualize our essential consciousness in relation to our experience-- an awakening from the lull of habitualization and a re-engagement with awareness.
“For centuries, theologians have been explaining the unknowable in terms of the-not-worth-knowing.” - Henry Louis Mencken (1880-1956)
"A human being is part of the whole, called by us 'universe,' a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separate from the rest -- a kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty." - Albert Einstein (1879-1955)
