What is So Special About the Natural World?
What does it take to build a universe that can house large, complicated creatures like ourselves? A rich body of mathematical laws which are properly calibrated and integrated one with the other as well as a planet possessing all the factors needed to support life. It just so happens that this is the type of universe and planet that we find ourselves living in.
Man is a virtual revolution in the animal world. Capable of forming sophisticated relationships, communicating via complex language, and discovering the very laws that make up the physical universe. What's more, man possesses a unique physical form which is uniquely able to channel his intellectual capabilities into stunning technological achievements.
Geckos run up glass walls and Gos hawks fly full speed through wooded forests. Hearts pump blood and wings propel flight. Cells store information and create molecular machines. The living world is full of technological wonders and achievements which far exceed our most impressive accomplishments and which we can only dream of mimicking.
