As of 12/4/2016 the servers are now in their new homes, the web server in Fremont and the archive server emma in Santa Cruz. Some of the pre-2004 archive programs are not yet online but will be soon. Your support is essential if the service is to continue, there are bandwidth bills to pay every month and failing disk drives to replace. Volunteers do the work, but disk drives and bandwidth are not free. Click on this bar to contribute, even a dollar helps.

Our cultural creation stories hold much more power over our concepts of what is possible, what is reality and how our institutions can operate than most of us generally realize. Is our reality purely mechanistically based, is life just the good fighting the bad or the light overcoming the shadow or is the Avatar story closer to the truth? It took 15 billion years to be where we are today (Long Time Comin), give a listen to this collage for a better idea of what this all means about you.

Sr. Miriam T. MacGillis is the pre-eminent teller of the New Cosmological Story as envisioned by the likes of Thomas Berry and Brian Swimme. The majority of the audio came from a presentation given in 1986. You could say it has stood the test of time.

I am most grateful for the spoken word pieces of Vincent Di Stefano, a Melbourne resident with a fine sense of our western cultural history and the institutional influences found within. Ever a questioning mind and consummate wordsmith - see his Blog Integral Reflections.
