Part 1 of Splendors of the Spirit: Swedenborg's Quest for Insight. "From time immemorial humanity has pursued answers to the fundamental questions -- Who are we? What is the meaning and purpose of life? What happens after death? Two centuries ago in Sweden there lived a man who found remarkable answers to these questions. His name was Emanuel Swedenborg, an eminent scientist, inventor, statesman and philosopher. This program conveys the essential and ever-relevant insights brought back by Swedenborg from his unprecedented explorations of the spiritual worlds."

"Emmy Award-winning producer Penny Price portrays the fascinating life and thought of the Swedish Enlightenment scientist and spiritual visionary Emanuel Swedenborg, whom Zen scholar D.T. Suzuki revered as the 'great king of the mystical realm.' Interweaving breathtaking nature photography, expert interviews, computer animation, and rare, archival stills with dramatic re-enactment featuring acclaimed actor Lillian Gish and contemporary documentary footage, this program conveys the essential and ever-relevant insights brought back by Swedenborg from his unprecedented explorations of the spiritual worlds. Swedenborg documented the death experience as the soul departs its expired material form, awakens into the afterlife realm, and is stripped of every accretion of personality to gravitate to the level of the upper or nether regions that corresponds perfectly to its innermost nature."
