In October our “Life Ripples” Book Circle is discussing Neal deGrasse Tyson’s Astrophysics for People in a Hurry. What is the nature of space and time? How do we fit within the universe? How does the universe fit within us? Astrophysicist and best-selling author Neal deGrasse Tyson guides us through these mind-expanding questions.
Alongside Tyson’s book, I’m also reading A Beautiful Question: Finding Nature's Deep Design by Nobel Prize-winning physicist Frank Wilczek. Wilczek’s book is a meditation on the question: Does the universe embody beautiful ideas?
Artists as well as scientists throughout human history have pondered this “beautiful question,” and “Why is the world so beautiful?” is a question that we all should embrace.
I hope you will join us!
