"The Man Who Saw Through Time" by Loren Eisely.


Recommended Posts

You are right Christie, Eisley really gets FB.

One of my first excursions into Bacon was through Loren Eisley's insightful and easy to read book, FB and the Modern Dilemma : The Man Who Saw Through Time

 

"Bacon himself was seeking the road by which the human mind might be opened to the full
image of the world, not reduced to the little compass of a state machine."

                                                                     ********

"The world without Shakespeare's insights is a lesser world, our griefs shut more in-
articulately in upon themselves. We grow mute at the thought just as an element seems to disappear
from sunlight without Van Gogh. Yet these creations we might call particle episodes in the human universe acts without precedent, a kind of disobedience of normality, unprophesiable by science, unduplicable
by other individuals on demand."

Thanks Lawrence. Two fantastic quotes!

As Bacon saw that man could aspire to discover far greater horizons so too did Nobel Prize winner Francis Krick who disovered DNA on an LSD trip and believed that man as yet only use 5% of his genetic store of intelligence. 

Oh that double helix twisting and turning is quite a sight to see on one's closed eyelids. 😉

Interesting! But it is funny that the twisting double helix is a vision that is seen by some. 🙂

There's a Twist to the DNA Double-Helix  origins. Seems that there is another "authorship " controversy surrounding the discovery. Check out who Rosalind Franklin is. https://www.forbes.com/sites/johncumbers/2019/11/21/the-woman-who-first-showed-us-the-double-helix-a-personal-look-at-rosalind-franklin/?sh=43f9b6f4856c

Francis Bacon, the 17th-century founder of modern, experimental science, argued that truth emerges best from discoveries that are “properly and regularly abstracted from particulars” of reality rather than through untethered reason. Without Franklin’s experimental particulars, derived at great cost, from real DNA molecules of real calf thymus glands, nobody would have heard of Watson and Crick.
