What Is Your Favorite Deep, Elegant, Or Beautiful Explanation? | 2012 Annual Question | Edge

What Is Your Favorite Deep, Elegant, Or Beautiful Explanation? | 2012 Annual Question | Edge | It's All Social | Scoop.it

"Scientists' greatest pleasure comes from theories that derive the solution to some deep puzzle from a small set of simple principles in a surprising way. These explanations are called "beautiful" or "elegant". Historical examples are Kepler's explanation of complex planetary motions as simple ellipses, Bohr's explanation of the periodic table of the elements in terms of electron shells, and Watson and Crick's double helix. Einstein famously said that he did not need experimental confirmation of his general theory of relativity because it "was so beautiful it had to be true."

The New Age of the Book by Robert Darnton | The New York Review of Books

"Consider the book. It has extraordinary staying power. Ever since the invention of the codex in the third or fourth century AD, it has proven to be a marvelous machine—great for packaging information, convenient to thumb through, comfortable to curl up with, superb for storage, and remarkably resistant to damage. It does not need to be upgraded or downloaded, accessed or booted, plugged into circuits or extracted from webs. Its design makes it a delight to the eye. Its shape makes it a pleasure to hold in the hand. And its handiness has made it the basic tool of learning for thousands of years, even before the library of Alexandria was founded early in the fourth century BC."

Video & Audio: Understanding Humans - Serendipity and Anthropology - Metadata

Video & Audio: Understanding Humans - Serendipity and Anthropology - Metadata | It's All Social | Scoop.it

..That's Richard Leakey...."There is much that we do know about the human as a consequence of our curiosity about ourselves. The fossil record, the archaeological record and the broad fields of social and cultural studies give an insight about our species that is fairly comprehensive. One thing is clear and that is that there was and is no “inevitability” to our being now or at any time, past, present and future. From the perspective of origins, serendipity is evident and in this era of renewed religious fundamentalism, we must promote the scientific understanding of humans far more than has been the practice in recent times. The prehistory of humanity is an excellent starting point where serendipity rather than design has been so critical."
