1. Opening Gambit
If our desirable purpose is to understand precisely the happenings of the universe that we live in as biological entity, there are two most important things to look for to attain our objective. The first is the resolution of internal strife without the conflict going anywhere near out of control. The second is diligently to take care of our environmental effects.
The first book, “Beyond the crunch”, is about environmentalism and all the other words associated with it, given in the beginning as key words. It is learning a lesson or two from ravages of cancer. To prevent cancer or its recurrence, it may help to know the process of cancer. The book is about that as well.
The second book, “I am life” is much more abstract and I think it may not be possible for you to guess who the protagonist is, at least not until chapter 8.
I am following the modified Socrates method (method of elenchus, elenctic method, Socratic irony, or Socratic debate)* of posing the issue and coming to consensus. One of the major differences is that he used street corners, but I have the opportunity of using e-corner or more fashionably i–corner. Here, the other major difference is in the method of approach which I have termed as correlational instead of Socrates’ logical approach. In due course, I wish to compile your feedbacks.
Let us begin with the first question – where are we humans heading? Read “Beyond the Big Crunch”, correlate, guess what is next and send your opinion.
2. Making of “Beyond The Big Crunch”
2. Making of “Beyond The Big Crunch”
The protagonist of this book is a cancer cell. The methodology followed here is – correlational. Scientifically, when we think of how the universe came into existence we naturally stumble on to the “big bang theory”. The correlation here, therefore, is between the birth of the universe and the birth of our protagonist. Consequently, one can look forward to the “Big Crunch” as the point on the other side. The theme of this book is for the humans to think “Beyond The Big Crunch” possibility, learning from the incident of the protagonist of this book.
Chapter 1 & 2: The first chapter was envisioning the big bang and the creation of the protagonist similar to that of universe. Where there is similarity there has to be dissimilarity. The dissimilarity in this context will be discussed later.
Chapter 3: Creatures who followed rules: Author was debating within him about the appropriate name for this chapter. Whether to name the chapter as “Persons who followed rules” or “Creatures who/that followed rules”? Finally, author decided on the latter, because there usually is an element of contempt or association of impracticality in the society towards the people who follow rules. Probably, those who follow rules are considered as people without sense of “adventure”. Perhaps there lies an ingredient of excitement in violating rules. Routinely, it might help in saving time and energy by circumventing rules. Because of this element of disdain prevalent in the society, the nomenclature, “creatures,” seems appropriate.
