Alan Lightman has published a really enlightening article on Nautil.us. It gave me a brand new and wonderful perspective I really had not thought in the same way before. “Is Life Special Just Because It’s Rare?” really highlights the premise of how small the actual fraction of living matter represents in comparison to the rest of the universe, yet how much of a miracle our ability to reflect on it truly is. Worth a read – and there is much more on this site. I voted with my wallet some time back.
