Why Cosmos and Psyche?
So you may wonder, what has Richard Tarnas or COSMOS and PSYCHE got to do with this site, or Philip Levine, or Mystery: Dancing in the Dark?
Good question. Sometimes I wonder too.
But it's really quite simple. I do know Richard Tarnas a little, and like me, he is very interested in the Mystery and astrology.
The only reason his book appears here is because I feel it is wonderfully written, and very important. He tries to make us "look through Galileo's telescope," to see the world around us with fresh eyes. His purpose is in part to help end the centuries of living in what he calls a "disenchanted universe", one in which science has banished any reference to spirit, to the imagination, or the Mystery.
So it is only out of a feeling of kinship and appreciation that I have undertaken here to help promote his great book.
