This is a sequence of 75 vignettes: one to four-page mind-pictures of places, persons, ideas, and moral issues. The themes advance thus: observations of objects in space; concern with aesthetics and the arts (sculpture, architecture) that organize space; travelling - which moves through, and fills with, space; evolution and nature; the imagination - as maker of art, and our sense of space; the religious instinct as an outgrowth of the imagination; the religious and the mythical - how they are inter-related; our potential for compassion and solidarity; and the chances we have to export life with us beyond the grave. A world-view expresses itself here in pictures of the world; a blend of poetry, logic, historical observation, and mini-fictions.
