“The artists in Biophilia: In Excelsis dwell in the sacred apprehension of the divine in the life forms that draw us to them. We are in relationship with the spiritual presence that transcends the objects and beings that surround us—the life forms of trees, water, sky, and of the myriad creatures of the forests and the fields. As Thomas Berry wrote, “that numinous presence whence all things come into being.’”— M. Annenberg
