This evening, we’ll explore whether our empirical discoveries about the earth and the universe hint at useful answers to this question.
To investigate this possibility, we will ask:

• Where does the human species fit into the evolutionary development of life on earth?

• What transformed us from a typical mammalian species to the planetary power we are today?

• How has the human radically altered the relationship between genetics and behavior?

• What role did symbols, language, and imagination play in the ascent of humanity?

• In what ways does evolution become conscious of itself through the human?

• Why have humanity’s special gifts proved such a challenge to the earth community?

• What does all this tell us about the special power and responsibility of humans on earth?
