Summary Wonders of LifeWonders of Life

Wonders of Life characters Æ 109 In Wonders of Life Exploring the Most Extraordinary Force in the Universe the definitive companion to the Discovery Science Channel series Professor Brian Cox takes us on an incredible journey to discover the most complex diverse and uniue force in the universe life itselfThrough his voyage of discovery internation. Hunger Games returned me to reading fiction and story Just as Sagan s Cosmos years earlier took me away from the fantasy and sci fi books of my teen years Cosmos fascinated me My mind caught fire for the first time in a long timeWe are made of star stuffThe book took my fragmented knowledge of physics and astronomy and connected me very personally to concepts that previously seemed beyond my reach Science made accessible but not condescending I was enthralled I read books on physics and astronomy Then philosophy not as separate from science as I believeduest for knowledge using different tools Then history of physics and philosophy Then history I found the patterns and connections in my reading very comforting to a highly analytical mind Cause and effectA couple of days ago my Bookbub e mailer notified me that Wonders of Life was on sale on iBooks I knew nothing of the book The byline touted Brian Cox as the heir to Sagan I was intrigued and sceptical but an asking price of 3 USD does not allow scepticism to intimidate the wallet Now after reading I would have gladly paid full price In fact I am ordering a hardcover version because the illustrations and photos are amazing and iBooks cannot do those correctlyMany of you probably already know Brian Cox I did notMany of you have probably already seen the BBC s Wonders TV series I did not I do not watch or stream much TVI was ignorant of both author and documentary and started the book with no preconceptions other than Brian Cox hailed in some uarters as the next Carl Sagan HmmphAs with Toad see below I was than pleasantly surprised and hooked from the introductory anecdote that Doctor Cox shares of Richard Feynman Doctor Cox s words The flower is made up of cells single units with identical genes Hidden within are a multitude of biochemical machines each highly specialised to perform complex tasks that keep the cell alive Some contain chloroplasts once free living bacteria co opted into capturing light from the Sun and using it to assemble food from carbon dioxide and water There are mitochondria factories that pump protons up energy waterfalls and insert organic waterwheels into the ensuing cascade to assemble ATP molecules the universal batteries of life And there is DNA a molecule with a code embedded in its structure that carries the instructions to assemble the flower but also contains fragments of the story of the origin and evolution of all life on Earth from its beginnings 38 billion years ago to the endless forms most beautiful that have transformed a once sterile world into the grandest possible expression of the laws of nature This is beauty way beyond the aesthetic that as Feynman concluded only adds to the excitement and mystery and the awe of a flower It only adds I don t understand how it subtracts Yes indeed uite possibly the next Carl Sagan Or better yet the first Brian Cox with the ability to communicate complex and fascinating concepts in a way that everyone can enjoy without feeling patronisedThe next paragraph in the introduction anticipated another doubt How does a particle physicist write about biologyThe remainder of the book suelched that doubt A brilliant book Biology and physics are not completely separate Branches of the same tree The Tree of Knowledge The Tree of ScienceThe author provides than interesting facts and connections He conveys a reverential awe of and deep respect for his subject LIFE Deeper understanding confers that most precious thing wonderHe borrows a thought provoking uestion from Erwin Schrodinger of cat lover fameor notoriety and moves the uestion from religious and philosophical territory on to a scientific foundation What is Life How can the events in space and time which take place within the spatial boundary of a living organism be accounted for by physics and chemistryHe then explores both factual and mythical Frankenstein exploits the laws of thermodynamics fuel cells and jellyfish allowing the reader to breathlessly or carefully follow to the reader s own conclusionsI devoured this book Completed it in a single sitting The book is not long and there are lots of sublime graphics Again digital forms of the book will not do justice to the graphics The first graphic of a Fibonacci spiral detailing the history of the earth and evolution is incredible I have never seen information on evolution so elegantly and simply displayed Doctor Cox does not elaborate on the graphic but one could spend a lot of time trying to digest it all I did But lately finishing a book even a graphic novel in a single go has been unusual for me Too much stress and noise in my life to clear space for reading This book was an exceptionAn author of fiction uses plot to build suspense and usually ends a chapter with a cliffhanger to keep the reader turning pages With this book the reader s mind wants to understand and and continue to make the connections that the author offers No better page turner than understanding and comprehension I get it I never knew that And as the author mentioned after understanding Wonder ensues It is addictingSurprisingly when I closed the book I felt that same sense of sad goodbye that I have felt reading my favorite novelsEven importantly I felt a deep appreciation for the rarity and gift of lifea connection to life Life is preciousA great introduction to Brian Cox for me I will be reading and his books will be placed on the shelf next to Carl Sagan s who awakened a part of my mind that has provided much satisfaction in my lifeThe book s complementary uote to the earlier uote from Sagan s CosmosThis is because you share a common ancestor with grass You are related You were once the sameThe soundtrack or songs that came to mind as I read Forest Fire I loved this band as a teenager They made independent of whatever mood besets me my favorite ever music recording which provided the emotional soundscape to an iconic scene in a classic 80s coming of or notforever young age film The scene and the song held so much emotional relevance for me More recently the 12 single difficult to find once given up was gifted to me for Christmas A priceless and meaningful gift that accompanied a collection of letters from my favorite painter An amazing first date in his homeland museumBut I digress Typical me In the early 90s while I was finishing university I was beginning to understand the word environment for the first timeMany were fighting to save the rain forests of South and Central America long before Cameron s trip to Pandora We as a society worried about depletion of the ozone layer The US Clean Air Act of 1990 greatly limited the use of CFCs Just after the Act was amended a visiting professor at a monthly engineering seminar stated Mount Pinatubo did to destroy the ozone layer than everything man has done since the beginning of the industrial age I raised my hand and asked if that was an excuse for us to also recklessly contribute as a few billion mini volcanoes The dean was not happyThat is the vein of this song And although the book never explicitly mentions environmentalism few texts have better conveyed the preciousness and rarity of lifeALL lifeand how interconnected all life isNow we at least some of we speak of global warming Some of us and I am guilty in my tired middle age know that we will not pay the price for our irresponsibility or we hope that technology will again save us from the brink of disaster Whether global warming is a cyclical progression of Mother Earth or caused principally by humanity Mother will survive We may not Life is also fragile The Minnow and the Trout Live The video is shaky and microphones in 2008 were not that dynamic but I enjoyed her banter before singing Fenicotteri In the park The sentiment of this song summarizes the book so perfectly for me Please I know that we re differentWe were one cell in the sea in the beginningAnd what we re made of was all the same onceWe re not that different after allWe are tied in historyConnected like a familyWe can learn We can change We can be respectful and aware of all the life around us in all of its fascinating varietiesWe are different but as the book explains so lucidly not as different physiologically as we might think Humans and grass Life Is Beautiful The song surely is about internal emotional structure than biology but this is the song that came to mind first as I read the book and began to feel the grandeur of life and its complexity And for this book the cover art of the song s album seems than appropriateI saw Toad opening for The Origin in 1992 months before All I Want became hugely popular on college then mainstream radio My friends and I knew nothing of the band and were

Ah what to spend my Sunday doing after putting away the Christmas decorations Well I guess the third and final Brian Cox book from the TV series of the same name is as good as any place to start This one was a bit of a strange read for me The layout and the design in fact the whole feel of it was in keeping with the solar system and the universe books but this time it takes a look inwards It looks at and yes as the name implies the wonders of life so it now concentrates on the impossibly small instead of the impossibly large however there are many times when the subject matter manages to find its way back to stellar explanations and descriptions as you feel that is where the author is most comfortable in his work but still it carries many insight that I was no expecting to find
