Happy Friday friends.

One of my favorite authors Sean Carroll is emerging as one of the greatest humanist thinkers of his generation.

In this book, he explores our deepest personal questions:

➡️Where are we?

➡️Who are we?

➡️Does human purpose and meaning fit into a scientific worldview?

In short chapters filled with intriguing historical anecdotes, personal asides, and rigorous exposition, readers learn the difference between how the world works at the quantum level, the cosmic level, and the human level — and then how each connects to the other.

Carroll’s presentation of the principles that have guided the scientific revolution from Darwin and Einstein to the origins of life, consciousness, and the universe is dazzlingly unique. He shares how discoveries in the past few hundred years has changed our world and what really matters to us

Definitely worth the read!
