Here is a link to my last post for Discover. It is a kind of summation of the themes I was working on there.
So now to the future.
My hats off to all the bloggers out there who can post 3 or 4 times a week. I think I may be a crusty old-timer in this new medium so I will be posting here a couple of times a week on themes from the book as well as a broader set of topics which run ashore of the human search for the True and the Real. These will include:
Science and Religion - the Good, the Bad and the Future
Science and the Human Prospect - how to best deploy science in the service of a just and sustainable culture.
Topics in Cosmology (woopie!)
Cool new stuff in astrobiology, planet and star formation
Stuff on the Foundations of Science (physics in particular but hey biology can be pretty weird too)
Topics in the Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics - the endless debate about what QM really tells us.
The study of Consciousness (I got pulled deep into this via my bloggingheads debate and am now lost in how cool the topic is)
So thare you go. Hopefully the mucking around will be useful. So many wonderful topics, so many other day-to-day urgencies that get in the way (sigh).
Tomorrow's topic: Francisco Varela and Phenomenal Promise
