“We humans long to be connected with our origins, so we create rituals. Science is another way to express this longing. It also connects us with our origins, and it too has its rituals and its commandments. Its only sacred truth is that there are no sacred truths. All assumptions must be critically examined. Arguments from authority are worthless. Whatever is inconsistent with the facts, no matter how fond of it we are, must be discarded or revised. Science is not perfect, it’s often misused, it’s only a tool, but it’s the best tool we have. Self-correcting, ever-changing, applicable to everything. With this tool we vanquish the impossible. With the methods of science we have begun to explore the cosmos.” – Carl Sagan
Love the line art animation, but… is that a hydra turning into a urochordate tadpole larva?
