Science as Religion as Art

"The Cosmos is Within Us"

I found this interesting because of how it converts the idea of science into a message through an artistic form.

Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XGK84Poeynk what follows is the information from the youtube video including the lyrics:

MP3 available at http://www.symphonyofscience.com.

"We Are All Connected" was made from sampling Carl Sagan's Cosmos, The History Channel's Universe series, Richard Feynman's 1983 interviews, Neil deGrasse Tyson's cosmic sermon, and Bill Nye's Eyes of Nye Series, plus added visuals from The Elegant Universe (NOVA), Stephen Hawking's Universe, Cosmos, the Powers of 10, and more. It is a tribute to great minds of science, intended to spread scientific knowledge and philosophy through the medium of music.

Check out "A Glorious Dawn" by Carl Sagan, another Symphony of Science project!

Lyrics:

[deGrasse Tyson]

We are all connected;

To each other, biologically

To the earth, chemically

To the rest of the universe atomically

[Feynman]

I think nature's imagination

Is so much greater than man's

She's never going to let us relax

[Sagan]

We live in an in-between universe

Where things change all right

But according to patterns, rules,

Or as we call them, laws of nature

[Nye]

I'm this guy standing on a planet

Really I'm just a speck

Compared with a star, the planet is just another speck

To think about all of this

To think about the vast emptiness of space

There's billions and billions of stars

Billions and billions of specks

[Sagan]

The beauty of a living thing is not the atoms that go into it

But the way those atoms are put together

The cosmos is also within us

We're made of star stuff

We are a way for the cosmos to know itself

Across the sea of space

The stars are other suns

We have traveled this way before

And there is much to be learned

I find it elevating and exhilarating

To discover that we live in a universe

Which permits the evolution of molecular machines

As intricate and subtle as we

[deGrasse Tyson]

I know that the molecules in my body are traceable

To phenomena in the cosmos

That makes me want to grab people in the street

And say, have you heard this??

(Richard Feynman on hand drums and chanting)

[Feynman]

There's this tremendous mess

Of waves all over in space

Which is the light bouncing around the room

And going from one thing to the other

And it's all really there

But you gotta stop and think about it

About the complexity to really get the pleasure

And it's all really there

The inconceivable nature of nature

awesome concept, clever use of technology and most importantly, it educates us about science, religion and how small we are. Thanks for the link. These are things I like.
