Conventional wisdom dictates that the idea of Earth being at the center of the universe is a ridiculous holdover from an ancient, superstitious age. Modern science has long maintained that the human species is nothing special in the context of the cosmos.
Rick DeLano brings to light new scientific observations challenging the Copernican Principle. His film, The Principle, brings before the public eye astonishing results from recent large-scale surveys of our Universe which disclose surprising evidence of a preferred direction in the cosmos, aligned with our supposedly insignificant Earth. The film explores from all sides the question of Earth’s station in the universe and whether it could, in fact, have a unique importance.”
About Rick DeLano
Rick DeLano has worked as a producer, executive producer, and financial consultant in the music and film industries for over twenty years. His fascination with the question of our place in the cosmos began with a $1,000 internet challenge to provide direct scientific proof of the universally assumed motion of the Earth around the Sun.
“The Principle” is the first documentary examination of the Copernican/cosmological Principle, and has generated a bit of controversy.
