It’s amazing our world…isn’t it?
The secrets of life are all around us..embedded in science, from the very small (atomic particles) to the very large…the universe. Think about the energy to create and the cosmic power to destroy…our lives are filled with truly amazing finds….right in front of us–the raw nature of our world as we journey to the edge of exploration…ever curious to unlock the secrets…science propels my curiosity always forward.
The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.
A human being is a part of a whole, called by us ‘universe’, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest… a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.
