Exploring the deep connection between science, humans and the universe

science humans

Science, humans, and the universe share a profound connection. Humans are born with an inherent curiosity, a creature closely related to plants and inanimate objects. However, among all living beings, humans are distinct. Similarly, human societies differ from other life communities. The cultural practices of human societies are built on a foundation of human relationships, traditions, and sciences. To some extent, it is correct to say that science has a direct connection to every aspect of life. We can use it as a means to gain a complete understanding of the universe.

Can literature, art, poetry, music, and mysticism also serve as means to understand the universe? To deeply understand all these aspects, I recommend reading the following books:

“The Tree of Knowledge: The Biological Roots of Human Understanding” by Humberto R Maturana and Francisco J Varela. 

This book, translated into several languages, delves into the realms of biology and perception, providing insights into the intricate web of relationships that define life. The authors use the metaphor of a tree to symbolize a robust network that continuously expands and grows.

“Poetree” by Shauna LaVoy Reynolds, with illustrations by Shahrzad Sliney. 

This beautifully illustrated book brings forth the idea that all living entities, much like trees, play an integral role in the environment. The poetic narrative establishes a unique bond between humans and the surrounding living beings.

“The Poetry and Music of Science” by Tom McLeish. 

This book is a vital exploration of the profound relationship between science and art. McLeish dismantles common misconceptions and introduces a fresh perspective on the creative capacities of both science and art. The book encourages readers to appreciate the artistic and poetic aspects of scientific discovery.

“Poems In My Words” by Risezette Webber.

This collection of short poems captures the essence of various emotions and experiences, providing readers with a diverse and captivating exploration of life’s different phases. Risezette Webber skillfully conveys the intricacies of human experiences through her unique and thought-provoking verses.

“The Color of My Words” by Lynn Joseph.

Lynn Joseph weaves a compelling narrative through poetry and prose, addressing the profound connection between culture and the human experience. The novel explores the impact of cultural norms and societal expectations on familial relationships, showcasing the strength and resilience of human bonds.

These books, each in its own way, offer a rich tapestry of ideas and perspectives that can broaden one’s understanding of life, culture, and the intricate relationships that define the human experience. After immersing yourself in these readings, you may find that your perspective has been enriched with a deeper appreciation for the diverse facets of our existence.
