“When we talk about the big bang or the fabric of space,
what we are doing is not a continuation of the free and fantastic stories
that humans have told nightly around campfires for hundreds of thousands of years.
It is the continuation of something else:
of the gaze of those same men in the first light of day
looking at tracks left by antelope in the dust of the savannah -
scrutinizing and deducting from the details of reality
in order to pursue something that we can't see directly but can follow the traces of.
In the awareness that we can always be wrong,
and therefore ready at any moment to change direction if a new track appears;
but knowing also that if we are good enough we will get it right
and will find what we are seeking.
That is the nature of science.”
Science quote for today... some people think that a scientist type of mind may be cold and loveless, always looking for patterns, for logic models. But there is an openness to this type of mindset. It allows us to learn deeply about ourselves and others, about what really matters and 'makes sense' to us... It creates a sense of devotion, understanding and love for what deeply affects us and is important to us - including connection, partnership, family, community.
