“As long as our brain is a mystery, the universe, the reflection of the structure of the brain will also be a mystery.”→ Santiago Ramón y Cajal
“There are no extra pieces in the universe. Everyone is here because he or she has a place to fill, and every piece must fit itself into the big jigsaw puzzle.” → Deepak Chopra
Understanding the Beautiful Complexity of Our Universe:
“We begin our journey in the world of the small. Basic particles are really really tiny. For a long time, people thought these particles had no size at all. But then along came quantum mechanics which proves it is impossible for anything real to have a size of zero. Today we know that fundamental particles have a real size, called a Planck Length…named after Hall of Fame physicist, Max Planck, Now a Planck Length is so small it is hard to imagine, much less to describe. (But that won’t keep us from trying)”
“From dogstars to dog stars (show lassie), from diamonds to diamondbacks, All normal matter in the universe is made from electrons and two other tiny little guys called quarks. Put those three thing together; let them interact, and you get all of the incredible complexity that makes the universe such an interesting place. But how does that happen? How go you get somebody like Leonardo DaVinci from mixing just three different particles? How do you go from such simplicity to such incredible complexity? Let me take you on a journey, and together we just might figure it out. Surely along the way we will probe life…consciousness…and the inner workings of the human brain…and just maybe uncover a few surprises.”
