What really happened – in the beginning? Was it Nothing, Chaos, Power, or Love?
It’s the ultimate question, and the biggest mystery: How did we get here? And what is the point of us all anyway?
In this video, Glen Scrivener talks us through four competing options to explain the origin of the universe: Nothing, Chaos, Power, or Love.
The first three choices seem pretty bleak: a pointless existence, a fight for survival or a distant deity. Thankfully, there is another option.
“For if nothing’s our source, then life’s absurd. If chaos, then war’s the final word. If power, then all of us are slaves. And yet it’s love the whole world craves.”
“So what’s our “beginning”? Our answers count.”
