Fault and fissure in the human heart

From the series Speaking of Faith, this episode is highly recommended. Using his perspective as deep sea explorer and revolutionizer of plate tectonics, geophysicist Xavier Le Pichon has also lived in an intentional community caring for people with mental disabilities for many years, and has developed a rich perspective on human fragility and suffering based, in part, on his scientific understanding of a still-evolving world. Fault lines in the Earth and human spirit, though weak in themselves, make a better future possible. They rarely waste a hurt.
