wonder


Random quote of the day:

“Punctuationally speaking, wonder is a period at the end of a statement we’ve long taken for granted, suddenly looking up and seeing the sinuous curve of a tall black hat on its head, and realizing it was a question mark all along.”

Random quote of the day:

 

“The spirit [is] the pattern of information of which we are made—our genes, proteins, memories, and personalities. In this sense, spirituality is the quest to know the place of our spirit within the deep time of evolution and the deep space of the cosmos. Although there are many paths to spirituality, I believe that science gives us the deepest possible sense of grandeur and wonder about our place in time and space.”

—Michael Shermer, “The Value of Skepticism: Is Skepticism a Negative or a Positive for Science and Humanity?”

Random quote of the day:

 

“Consciousness itself may be the primary creative force in the universe, and our knowledge of the physical properties of the physical world is far from complete.  The emerging picture is a cosmos that is an interconnected harmonic web, vibrating with creativity and intelligence, in which separateness is an illusion.”

—John E. Mack, “Messengers From the Unseen,” Oberlin Alumni Magazine, Fall 2002, Vol. 98, No. 2
