Unraveling the Spreading Cloth of Time: Indigenous Thoughts Concerning the Universe Edited by MariJo Moore and Trace A. DeMeyer Dedicated to Vine Deloria Jr

Exploring Quantum physics in relation to Indigenous peoples' understanding of the spiritual universe, this anthology includes writings from 40 Native writers from various nations. “Unraveling the Spreading Cloth of Time, MariJo Moore and Trace DeMeyer's brilliant anthology, explores an uncanny tension between Indigenous understandings of a moral, interconnected universe and the edges of western science and philosophy that -in time- come to the same conclusion.” ---- Dr. Phillip J. Deloria, Carroll Smith-Rosenberg Collegiate Professor of History and American Studies, University of Michigan, author of Playing Indian and coauthor of The Native Americans “Unraveling the Spreading Cloth of Time offers a very clear contrast between the Western science view of the cosmos as an object for study -- something external to the scientists -- and the Native American view of each person being a participating part of a dynamical, living web of connections. This anthology will be very useful in opening up readers to a vision and experience of the Native American worldview, which is presented expertly throughout the text as one of flux and change.” --- Dr. F. David Peat, Theoretical Physicist, founder of the Pari Center for New Learning in Italy, and author of Blackfoot Physics and Science, Order and Creativity (with David Bohm)
