Cologne, Germany – Stuck in Customs

Cologne, Germany

I walked into this amazing cathedral and was amazed to see this surrealist scene. On a huge screen, they were showing deep views of the universe while atmospheric Phillip Glass music droned heavily, bouncing and echoing around the stone. People would sit in the pews and just watch slow animations of the universe unfolding. There were priests who sat around the outside edges of the cathedral to answer any questions that people might have and I thought this was pretty great to see, as often there is a disconnect between religion and science. Of course, some switched-on theologians know that it is all the same thing, from a single source. This cathedral took centuries to finish and was started back in the good ol’ days of 1248.
