I have a heart but it's dark, so very verily dark...


Then and Now

Then and Now by Tonya R. Moore
In the Past

I thought I might like to live in Alaska for a while, some far out place where I’d be surrounded by ice all the time. I thought the isolation might do me some good. I thought I’d like the contradiction of blinding sunlight and ice freezing my senses. I wanted to spot whales playing hide and seek with icebergs and watch the endless progression of glaciers.

Hosted by physicist Brian Greene, ‘The Fabric of the Cosmos’ is a journey to the frontiers of known physics in an effort to explore the deepest and most puzzling cosmological queries.

From NOVA/PBS regarding the final episode of the series, ‘Universe or Multiverse?

Hard as it is to swallow, cutting-edge theories are suggesting that our universe may not be the only universe. Instead, it may be just one of an infinite number of universes that make up the “multiverse.” In this show, Brian Greene takes us on a tour of this brave new theory at the frontier of physics, showing what some of these alternate realities might be like. Some universes may be almost indistinguishable from our own; others may contain variations of all of us, where we exist but with different families, careers, and life stories. In still others, reality may be so radically different from ours as to be unrecognizable. Brian Greene reveals why this radical new picture of the cosmos is getting serious attention from scientists. It won’t be easy to prove, but if it’s right, our understanding of space, time, and our place in the universe will never be the same.

“Around us, life bursts with miracles—a glass of water, a ray of sunshine, a leaf, a caterpillar, a flower, laughter, raindrops. If you live in awareness, it is easy to see miracles everywhere. Each human being is a multiplicity of miracles. Eyes that see thousands of colors, shapes, and forms; ears that hear a bee flying or a thunderclap; a brain that ponders a speck of dust as easily as the entire cosmos; a heart that beats in rhythm with the heartbeat of all beings. When we are tired and feel discouraged by life’s daily struggles, we may not notice these miracles, but they are always there.”
