Wednesday’s Big Idea
Today’s Big Idea: Science as Spirituality
In the absence of a creator, or a set of religious codes to help us make sense of the universe, what holds us together?

From ancient Buddhist practices designed to focus the mind to transhumanist theories to a view of scientific curiosity as spirituality, thinkers worldwide are taking systemic approaches to the question of how to build a meaningful life without the idea of a cosmic puppeteer.
