So I know you're into about as much science and nerd shit as I am, but I feel I'm limiting my intake, Got any book recommendations that you would like to recommend?
the ancestor’s tale - richard dawkins (this one assumes you’re not a creationist)
the greatest show on earth - dawkins (you may have already read it but this one assumes you’re unconvinced about evolution. super fast read, dawkins makes gene study interesting. )
the demon haunted world - carl sagan (another you might have read already but if you havn’t you should.)
billions and billions - carl sagan (this one is a life changer. it’s the last book he wrote. buy this one and keep it forever.)
food of the gods - terence mckenna (great book that purposes that humans rapid growth in cognition came about by early humans ingestion psychedelic mushrooms. there’s some shamanic bullshit in here too which is interesting but obviously not true. also, terence was the guy that came up with time wave zero which is one of the 2012 conspiracies, so take the good with the bad. You can skip around in this one. )
the book: on the tabo of knowing who you are - alan watts. (i take alan watts with a grain of sand because his head is so far in the clouds sometimes but there’s still some pretty grand information and ideas here.)
einstein on humanism – albert einstein. (collection of notes from einstein on the idea of humanism)
Cosmos – carl sagan. (I’m assuming you’ve read this one because it’s the best selling science book in history. )
Before the big bang – brian clegg (this has a lot of good info but it’s nowhere on the level that the others I listed are.)
These are just the books stacked next to me, I can find more for you if you like.
“…earlier today around noon near Times Square. I’ve been on vacation with a couple of my friends in the city and most of them were sleeping in after a late night. I strolled out of the hotel and made my way to a nearby McDonald’s to grab some fries and a shake. When I was waiting to cross at the 46th and 7th crosswalk I noticed a hand slip around me from behind and grab two of my fries. In my confusion I turned around and HOLY SHIT ITS BILL FUCKING MURRAY! Before I could get a word out, he yelled over the crowd, “No one will ever believe you.” He then cross to the other side of 7th avenue and disappeared into the crowd.”—via
