What is “The Infinite”? (5:14)

In this talk, Steve presents ideas from his forthcoming book: The Presence of the Infinite: The Spiritual Experience of Beauty, Truth, and Goodness. Building on the scientific story of evolution, Steve explores how evolution creates value as it unfolds through the structure of emergence. Ever since the big bang, something more has been coming from something less, and this pattern of emerging reality shows how evolution is moving toward the beautiful, the true, and the good through its influence on us.
