Episode 2: The role of the human being is creativity (23 min.)
"The more that we have consciousness, the more we participate in the exegesis of the Infininte One. ... Our role, as human beings, is to continue the creative action," Bruteau tells interviewer Fox. "How are we not God?" she says in response to a question. "There is no way we are 'not God' because there cannot be any 'not God.' That is because God is infinite."

The spiritual and scientific seek the mystical
Beatrice Bruteau -- contemporary Christian contemplative, passionate scientist, and philosopher -- speaks about the creative impulse behind the evolutionary design of the universe. She has the unusual distinction of having deeply studied the work of both Teilhard de Chardin and Sri Aurobindo -- the 20th century's great spiritual evolutionary pioneers -- and has published several books exploring their visionary work.
Bruteau's books include The Holy Thursday Revolution and God's Ecstasy: The Creation of a Self-Creating World . Her studies and interests combine the spiritual and scientific as she seeks the mystical in the material and the vast creativity of God in the temporal unfolding of the cosmos. Like Teilhard de Chardin, Bruteau believes that we are at a unique juncture in history where, perhaps for the first time, evolution will not be primarily physical in nature but rather will be noetic -- a transformation or mutation of consciousness.
