Often, scientists are charged with removing mystery and wonder as we delve into the inner workings of the natural realm. I don’t agree with that, and neither does Randall Munroe (xkcd “Beauty”, above).
In this week’s TED talk, Robin Ince discusses how science does not take away anything from wonder. I was BLOWN away by this talk. Just blown away. But not in the way you might imagine. I don’t want to ruin it for you, so go ahead and watch the 8 minute clip for yourself. Then come back and comment because I want to see what you think about it and it should make for some healthy conversation.
