The Only Home We’ve Ever Known

Illustrator and recent Sheridan College graduate  Adam Winnik created this video for his final thesis. He takes Carl Sagan’s inspiring words, that he refers to as “scientific poetry,” and combined it with animation and music, to great effect.

I hope you find it as moving as I do:

  1. Thanks for the Adam Winnik video! It comes at a perfect time for me, as I am contemplating the web of life from several perspectives. Finally got around to reading the classic “The Secret Life of Plants” — the Findhorn chapter touched me the most. And then David Christopher’s brand new book, “The Holy Universe: A New Story of Creation for the Heart, Soul, and Spirit” — a must-read, parsed as a dialogue between Sage and Seeker. And last night I attended a lecture by the Brit Rob Hopkins — founder of the Transition movement, and local activist Gopal Dayaneni, both of whom are singing the same song in yet another key. One of Gopal’s takeaway quotes: “If you’re gonna call Earth your Mother, and call it Home, you gotta play by the house rules.”
