Centipedes, spiders, flies.
December 1, 2012
Life on Mercury? Water and organic compounds have been discovered there. A huge black hole in the middle of a neighbouring galaxy. As I get older I find myself being drawn closer to what’s way out there. And bugs. Centipedes, spiders, flies. There is something both squeamish and wonderful about the universe. And yet as a species we seem caught up in parochialism. Nationalism, religion,wealth.
I never felt that over the years I had been getting wiser. But what strikes me more and more is how much stupider much of the world is becoming.
