From Michio Kaku (so you know this is worth reading!)


"Instead of being overwhelmed by the Universe, I think that perhaps one of the deepest experiences a scientist can have, almost approaching a religious awakening, is to realize that we are children of the stars, and that our minds are capable of understanding the universal laws that they obey. The atoms within our bodies were forged on the anvil of nucleo-synthesis within an exploding star aeons before the birth of the solar system. Our atoms are older than the mountains. We are literally made of star dust. Now these atoms, in turn, have coalesced into intelligent beings capable of understanding the universal laws governing that event." ~ Michio Kaku

From Rich Wolfert (so you might want to read this, too).

Nature, science, and discovery are powerful motivators and attractors that can addict us. We hunger to learn more. We love to see the new…and so often, it's so beautiful that it can bring tears to our eyes, and cause us to sigh deeply in wonder and amazement. The quest for knowledge, the very act of discovery to better know the universe, our planet, nature, and ourselves feeds upon itself ever so wonderfully. This is another magnificent obsession, our obsession, and most of us would never apologize for how it adds to our lives. I feel that we are the lucky ones.

A message from Mother Nature. This is a very important short video that must be understood by all.
