Description

Illustrated with images ranging from Hubble-telescope photographs to ancient astrological art, this work explores the myth, symbolism, history, belief and scientific thought surrounding the cosmos, from art and religion to quantum theory and cosmobiology. The profound meanings mankind has attributed to the stars, constellations and planets since the earliest times are examined, including their psychological and mystical characteristics, the rituals and festivals associated with the heavenly bodies, their mythical and religious significance and their astronomical status. The authors draw parallels between different cultural views and theories of the universe, from the creation myths of the Ancient Greeks, Egyptians and Mesopotamians to modern speculation from astronomy and physics.show more
