The desire for spiritual location, hope, and poetic beauty can never be fully explained within the scientific paradigm. Consequently, in recent years, there has emerged a deeper realization among practitioners of both the sciences and the humanities that a new synthesis is required for society to both advance human understanding and give meaning to our existence. Exploring the possible avenues for greater synthesis between the Sciences and Humanities is not just about new academic models for research but goes to the very heart of the types of stories and narratives we attempt to construct for ourselves and for future generations. The more we understand what these powerful narrative's mean for us, for our research, and for society at large, the more we can help foster the development of new “mythologies" that are more life affirming rather than life negating.
