"Everything is everything...."

“The beauty of a living thing is not the atoms that go into it, but the way those atoms are put together.”
― Carl Sagan,

      Hosted by renowned astrophysicist, Neil de Grasse Tyson,  "Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey" airs Sunday at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Fox.  Often containing additional material,  the show will be rebroadcast on the National Geographic Channel. Check local listings. To catch up on previously aired episodes of "Cosmos" you can watch free via Hulu..

     How detrimental  is our understanding of modern science for civilization to thrive and survive? Without the discovery of quantum mechanics in the 1920's YOU wouldn't be reading this blog on a computer, tablet, iPhone or even have the ability to view Cosmos on television.  Without our passion and thirst for knowledge of ourselves and the universe none of the technological devices we take for granted everyday would have been invented. What is one astounding fact about the cosmos that fascinates Dr.Neil de Grasse Tyson and millions of human beings? Watch the mind blowing clip above while putting yourself  and your life in perspective. Enjoy your day.  There will never be another day like this day.....EVER.

“You are a function of what the whole universe is doing in the same way that a wave is a function of what the whole ocean is doing.”
