The Universe Story activates a new cosmology.
The Universe Story, incorporating science's discovery about the nature of the universe, requires that we create a new cosmology, one that is congruent with the way the universe works, if we are to survive.
The old cosmology does not account for or make sense of what we now know about the universe.
Because we have a new understanding of reality we must redefine what is of value.
Thomas Berry repeats the phrase "reality and value" a number of times in chapters 3 & 4 in The Dream of the Earth.
