Hey all! Due to a dwindling audience and personal reflection, I have decided to shake things up a bit here at Science and Soul, namely, combining them together in posts. I have always kept the science and soul post separate (Haikus and news stories, for example). But now, I wish to start something I borrowed from Neil Degrasse Tyson: The Cosmic Perspective. If you have ever watched NOVA scienceNOW, you will know that Dr. Neil Degrasse Tyson, the host of the show, follows up the science presented with a little speech about the implications of this science. Mix in a little bit of morals and deep, poignant, profound questions and you have the Cosmic Perspective.
So, after each news story, I will post my little shpiel. Not all stories really lend themselves to such ramblings. So, although I will try to stick more or less to the current categories, some improvisation and changes may be needed.
I hope you enjoy the change.
