Click here to see what a Universe Day group in San Francisco did at a previous annual Universe Day. Just like "Earth Day" events, we encourage you to invent your own local awareness celebrations, gatherings, creative partnerships with organizations, educational events, and community events. We dare you to inspire outside-the-box on ways to promote awareness for effectively reducing carbon emissions by using the new universe evolutionary perspective to create a more sustainable planet.
Please send us information about the local Universe Day events that you are creating at email@example.com and we will let others know about them. We will also be posting updates about our local San Francisco Universe day 2013 event in the Facebook window father down this page.
As reconstructive postmodernism has matured, the project of reconstructing a postmodern worldview, after the collapse of the modern one, has become the project of reconstructing a postmodern grand narrative. A narrative is, and is unapologetically so, a mere story. A narrative makes no claim to be the unvarnished truth, makes no claim on certainty; it is a self confessed representation, and nothing more. A narrative may be characterized as 'grand' when it tells a comprehensive story, a story that, when most comprehensive, includes everything. Theologian Thomas Berry and physicist Brian Swimme have collaborated to compose The Universe Story. They have been joined by astronomer Eric Chaisson, comparativist Mary Evelyn Tucker, philosopher Loyal Rue, theologian Gordon Kaufman, among others, to compose an epic of cosmic evolution as a grand narrative on the order of, and addressing the same problematics as, Genesis, the Theogony, the Enuma Elish, the Hawaiian Kumulipo, and similar traditional origin myths.

Authors and Luminaries Comments on the Universe for the 3rd Annual Universe Day
Universe Day is a unique and utterly special celebration, where the universal Ground of Being itself, underlying and giving rise to all of manifestation, is celebrated, honored, and given thanks for. Unlike parochial and specific-cultural celebrations of Spirit,
this is a celebration of cross-cultural and trans-individual Being itself, manifest so beautifully and exquisitely in the elegance, truth, goodness, and beauty of the entire universe itself and its extraordinary evolution, which is nothing less than Spirit-in-action. Please come and join us in this wonderfully important and profound celebration, this coming December 31
-- Ken Wilber
Ken Wilber is the world's leading “integral” philosopher. The author of such titles as A Brief History of Everything (1996) and A Theory of Everything (2000), his philosophy integrates body, mind, soul, and Spirit with self, culture, and nature. Integral philosophy is rapidly becoming a powerful presence in fields as diverse as politics and spirituality, psychology and business, medicine, and art. Revered as the “Einstein of consciousness,” Wilber has written sixteen books exploring different facets of human development and cultural evolution.
