Quotes[edit]

  • “When most people think of nature, they want to look for perfection and for symmetry and balance,” observes Gleiser. “But if you really pay attention you are going to see that what actually makes nature tick are the imbalances, the imperfections, the asymmetries.” [1]
  • ...Our spiritual attachment to nature transcends religion, being part of our innermost nature as a thinking species in a mysterious cosmos.[1]
  • Science treads in the same footsteps of our ancestors, answering to our longing to understand where we fit in as we look up to the sky.[2]
