Meaning, observed

TED blog has released another in its terrific series of videos of past TED presentations. Up yesterday: Oxford  professor Richard Dawkins, who talks about science meaning. Though I haven't listened - yet - the online description intrigues:

In this talk, titled, "Queerer Than We Suppose: The strangeness ofscience," he suggests that the true nature of the universe eludes us, because the human mind evolved to understand the "middle-sized" world we can observe.

At a mere 20 minutes or so, almost anyone can digest these clips in one sitting.

Since I just purchased John Barrow's most recent book, The Infinite Book: A Short Guide to the Boundless, Timeless and Endless, I suppose I'm just in the mood. And as I've said before, I'm a sucker for the big picture.
