“THE GREATEST OF ALL THE ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF 20TH-CENTURY SCIENCE has been the discovery of human ignorance.” Lewis Thomas, Lives of a Cell. “OUR IGNORANCE, OF COURSE, HAS ALWAYS BEEN WITH US, AND ALWAYS WILL BE. What is new is our awareness of it, our awakening to its fathomless dimensions, and it is this, more than anything else, that marks the coming of age of our species.” Timothy Ferris, Coming of Age in the Milky Way.

Smiling in the Same Language

A short video based on Huston Smith's "Universal Grammar of Religions." 

(Incidentally, if you recoil from the word "God" used herein, I understand. The term carries a mountain of religious and anti-religious baggage. Feel free to substitute your own term for what is All-Inclusively Whole; then see if most or all of the "universal grammar" still makes intuitive sense to you.)
