Astounding Science

Στο συρτάρι: λάιφ — helion @ 1:07 πμ

Μήνυμα προς απαισιόδοξους, από το νεοαποκτηθέν pop sci βιβλίο του Bill Bryson, A Short History of Nearly Everything – ως τώρα απολαυστικό:

Consider the fact that for 3.8 billion years, a period of time older than the Earth’s mountains and rivers and oceans, every one of your forebears on both sides has been attractive enough to find a mate, healthy enough to reproduce, and sufficiently blessed by fate and circumstances to live long enough to do so. Not one of your pertinent ancestors was squashed, devoured, drowned, starved, stranded, stuck fast, untimely wounded or otherwise deflected from its life’s quest of delivering a tiny charge of genetic material to the right partner at the right moment to perpetuate the only possible sequence of hereditary combinations that could result – eventually, astoundingly, and all too briefly – in you.
