Thoreau and Einstein: Science and the Cosmic Order
January 18, 2019 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PMFree
Connie Baxter Marlow, host of the talk show “Mystics, Alive and Well” interviews Henry David Thoreau and Dr. Albert Einstein for the second time with a theatrical reading: “Thoreau and Einstein: Science and the Cosmic Order.” She explores the two legendary men’s views on man’s understanding of the nature of reality. This is a scholarly piece consisting entirely of original quotations.
Last August, Marlow brought Mr. Thoreau and Dr. Einstein together for the first time at Sunrise Ranch during a Friday Night Workshop to discuss how mystical experiences had informed their lives and led them to be societal change agents of their times in her show “Thoreau and Einstein: Two Mystics Who Changed the World.
Thoreau is played by lover of mysticism and actor Gary Goodhue. Einstein is played by actor/filmmaker/author Andrew Cameron Bailey. Marlow has been bringing the mystical aspects of Thoreau to light since 2004 when she produced a film series “THE AMERICAN EVOLUTION: Voices of America” featuring Thoreau, a Thoreau Scholar, Native American elders, a Muslim Imam and others. This piece premiered at the Thoreau Society Annual Gathering in Concord, MA 2014
