COSMOS Reborn


 
Television and entertainment personality Seth MacFarlane Image of Family Guy cartoon main characters.seems to embody and express the emerging new cosmic consciousness of humanity.

In his irreverent television cartoon series “Family Guy,” nothing is ever taken seriously or held sacred by Seth’s brand of humor. Oddly, there seems to be a lot of detachment in that. It’s almost like a humorous kind of sacrilegious spiritual non-attachment to the illusory things of “this world.” The video below is a sampling of Seth’s cartooning humor.


There is also another side to Seth — one that is definitely expansive, mind-blowing, and awe-inspiring. His latest project “COSMOS” is an upgrade and reboot of the late Carl Sagan’s TV documentary series of the same title.


The new COSMOS TV project, Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, is co-produced by Sagan’s widow, Ann Druyan, together with Seth.


The Cosmos: A Personal Voyage series of the 20th century, then hosted and presented by Sagan, showcased the scientific insights and the cosmic vision of the universe circa the 1980s. In the 2014 reboot, Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, to be hosted by popular astrophysicist and Hayden Planetarium Director Neil deGrasse Tyson, those scientific insights will be updated as humanity’s cosmic vision gets upgraded, too.

It will certainly be fascinating to see the differences between COSMOS then and now, with respect to the body of acquired scientific knowledge and the looming new perspectives about the universe. I take those differences to be reflective of man’s expanded awareness since the past few decades: the growth and expansion of human awareness and the continuing unfoldment of spiritual consciousness.


The new series premiers on television tonight.
