THE HUMAN COSMOS
by Marchant, Jo, 1973- author.
CDBK 523.1 MAR
A historically unprecedented disconnect between humanity and the heavens has opened. Jo Marchant's book can begin to heal it. For at least 20,000 years, people have led not just an earthly existence but a cosmic one. Celestial cycles drove every aspect of daily lives. The innate relationship with the stars shaped who people are, art, religious beliefs, social status, scientific advances, and even a person's biology. But over the last few centuries people have separated themselves from the universe surrounding them. It's a disconnect with a dire cost. The relationship to the stars and planets has moved from one of awe, wonder, and superstition to one where technology is king, the cosmos is now explored through data on screens, not by the naked eye observing the natural world. Jo Marchant's spellbinding parade of the ways different cultures celebrated the majesty and mysteries of the night sky is a journey to the most awe inspiring view one can ever see, looking up on a clear dark night.

By the end of 1980, the Beatles had been broken up for a decade, a decade John Lennon had spent in search of his true identity: singer, songwriter, activist, burn out. "It's the perfect time to be coming back", he declared. Except that Lennon was a marked man. As early as the Beatles' controversial 1966 American tour, the band had feared for their safety. "You might as well put a target on me", Lennon said, and the Nixon administration complied by opening an FBI file. If only the agents hadn't been so intently focused on the star himself, they might have detected Mark David Chapman's powerful, ever-growing obsession with his one-time idol. Chapman, himself a tragic nowhere man, ultimately achieved the notoriety he craved by actualizing the target on Lennon, single-handedly wounding the spirit of a generation.
