by Paul R. Fleischman

Book Image Not Available
Overview
WONDER is a scientific and literary exploration of those discoveries that reveal our deepest identity. Paul R. Fleischman weaves rigorous physical and biological knowledge with authentic spirituality, giving us a new way to explore our place in the cosmos.
Description
What do a marigold, starlight over South Africa, and the birth of a child have in common? Every person, plant, and star springs up from information compounded by interaction. We are embedded in an ancient, intricate world. Changing combinations of atoms pass through the long filter of history and natural law, to form planet Earth, whales, and our own thoughts. Based on the growth of evidence explaining how the world is put together, we have become the first generation to have a narrative that unites electron motion to our breath, and that connects hydrogen fusion in the sun to the energy that powers our own minds. We can describe how the proteins in our mitochondria pinch and place into perfect position metal ions that were forged in exploding stars. We cohere for a moment, suspended between information, order, and transformation of all things. This book is a scientific and literary exploration of those discoveries that reveal our deepest identity. Through our urge to understand and communicate, we have uncovered new meanings that infuse our days with wonder.
