Vitenskap er virkelighetens poesi

Hvem sier at vitenskapen er ikke er vakker poesi? Vi omgir oss med produkter og løsninger som er resultat av vitenskap hver dag. Mange glemmer nettop det. Denne videoen fra  Symphony of Science får vitenskap til å fremstå som poesi.

Jeg er ikke akkurat glad i autotune i musikken, men her blir det faktisk veldig kult.

Symphony of Sciens


Teksten i Video
(Carl Sagan's lyrics written by Carl Sagan, Ann Druyan and Steven Soter)
[Michael Shermer]
Science is the best tool ever devised
For understanding how the world works
[Jacob Bronowski]
Science is a very human form of knowledge
We are always at the brink of the known
[Carl Sagan]
Science is a collaborative enterprise
Spanning the generations
We remember those who prepared the way
Seeing for them also
[Neil deGrasse Tyson]
If you're scientifically literate,
The world looks very different to you
And that understanding empowers you
Refrain:
[Richard Dawkins]
There's real poetry in the real world
Science is the poetry of reality
[Sagan]
We can do science
And with it, we can improve our lives
[Jill Tarter]
The story of humans is the story of ideas
That shine light into dark corners
[Lawrence Krauss]
Scientists love mysteries
They love not knowing
[Richard Feynman]
I don't feel frightened by not knowing things
I think it's much more interesting
[Brian Greene]
There's a larger universal reality
of which we are all a part
[Stephen Hawking]
The further we probe into the universe
The more remarkable are the discoveries we make
[Carolyn Porco]
The quest for the truth, in and of itself,
Is a story that's filled with insights
(Refrain)
[Greene]
From our lonely point in the cosmos
We have through the power of thought
Been able to peer back to a brief moment
After the beginning of the universe
[PZ Myers]
I think that science changes the way your mind works
To think a little more deeply about things
[Dawkins]
Science replaces private predjudice
With publicly verifiable evidence
(Refrain)

"The Poetry of Reality" is the fifth installment in the Symphony of Science music video series. It features 12 scientists and science enthusiasts, including Michael Shermer, Jacob Bronowski, Carl Sagan, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Richard Dawkins, Jill Tarter, Lawrence Krauss, Richard Feynman, Brian Greene, Stephen Hawking, Carolyn Porco, and PZ Myers, promoting science through words of wisdom.

Neste video har budskapet; We are all connected. Noe som er en sannhet. Musikk og damatugi er laget av John Boswell som driver Symphony of Science 

(Carl Sagan's lyrics written by Carl Sagan, Ann Druyan and Steven Soter)
[deGrasse Tyson]
Teksten i video
We are all connected;
To each other, biologically
To the earth, chemically
To the rest of the universe atomically
[Feynman]
I think nature's imagination
Is so much greater than man's
She's never going to let us relax
[Sagan]
We live in an in-between universe
Where things change all right
But according to patterns, rules,
Or as we call them, laws of nature
[Nye]
I'm this guy standing on a planet
Really I'm just a speck
Compared with a star, the planet is just another speck
To think about all of this
To think about the vast emptiness of space
There's billions and billions of stars
Billions and billions of specks
[Sagan]
The beauty of a living thing is not the atoms that go into it
But the way those atoms are put together
The cosmos is also within us
We're made of star stuff
We are a way for the cosmos to know itself
Across the sea of space
The stars are other suns
We have traveled this way before
And there is much to be learned
I find it elevating and exhilarating
To discover that we live in a universe
Which permits the evolution of molecular machines
As intricate and subtle as we
[deGrasse Tyson]
I know that the molecules in my body are traceable
To phenomena in the cosmos
That makes me want to grab people in the street
And say, have you heard this??
(Richard Feynman on hand drums and chanting)
[Feynman]
There's this tremendous mess
Of waves all over in space
Which is the light bouncing around the room
And going from one thing to the other
And it's all really there
But you gotta stop and think about it
About the complexity to really get the pleasure
And it's all really there
The inconceivable nature of nature

"We Are All Connected", featuring Bill Nye, Carl Sagan, Richard Feynman and Neil deGrasse Tyson, was made from sampling The History Channel's Universe series, Carl Sagan's Cosmos, Richard Feynman's 1983 interviews, Neil deGrasse Tyson's cosmic sermon, and Bill Nye's Eyes of Nye Series, plus added visuals from The Elegant Universe (NOVA), Stephen Hawking's Universe, Cosmos, The Powers of 10, and more.

Et av de store spørsmål er vår plass i universet. Hvem er vi, hva er vi, hvilken rolle har vi? Det er spørsmål vi har alltid har undret oss over. Musikk og damatugi er laget av John Boswell som driver Symphony of Science 

(Carl Sagan's lyrics written by Carl Sagan, Ann Druyan and Steven Soter)
[Narrator]
With every century
Our eyes on the universe have been opened anew
We are witness
To the very brink of time and space
[Robert Jastrow]
We must ask ourselves
We who are so proud of our accomplishments
What is our place in the cosmic perspective of life?
[Carl Sagan]
The exploration of the cosmos
Is a voyage of self discovery
As long as there have been humans
We have searched for our place in the cosmos
[Richard Dawkins]
Are there things about the universe
That will be forever beyond our grasp?
Are there things about the universe that are
Ungraspable?
[Sagan]
One of the great revelations of space exploration
Is the image of the earth, finite and lonely
Bearing the entire human species
Through the oceans of space and time
[Dawkins]
Matter flows from place to place
And momentarily comes together to be you
Some people find that thought disturbing
I find the reality thrilling
[Sagan]
As the ancient mythmakers knew
We're children equally of the earth and the sky
In our tenure on this planet, we've accumulated
Dangerous evolutionary baggage
We've also acquired compassion for others,
Love for our children,
And a great soaring passionate intelligence
The clear tools for our continued survival
[Michio Kaku]
We could be in the middle
Of an inter-galactic conversation
And we wouldn't even know
[Sagan]
We've begun at last
To wonder about our origins
Star stuff contemplating the stars
Tracing that long path
Our obligation to survive and flourish
Is owed not just to ourselves
But also to that cosmos
Ancient and vast, from which we spring

"Our Place in the Cosmos", the third video from the Symphony of Science, was crafted using samples from Carl Sagan's Cosmos, Richard Dawkins' Genius of Charles Darwin series, Dawkins' TED Talk, Stephen Hawking's Universe series, Michio Kaku's interview on Physics and aliens, plus added visuals from Baraka, Koyaanisqatsi, History Channel's Universe series, and IMAX Cosmic Voyage. The themes present in this song are intended to explore our understanding of our origins within the universe, and to challenge the commonplace notion that humans have a superior or privleged position, both on our home planet and in the universe itself.

Vår planet, jorden, er så vidt vi vet frem til nå unik i universet, og det inneholder liv
Planter og dyr som sprer seg i slikt antall at vi fortsatt ikke har kartlagt alle arter. Musikk og damatugi er laget av John Boswell som driver Symphony of Science 
 

(Carl Sagan's lyrics written by Carl Sagan, Ann Druyan and Steven Soter)
[David Attenborough]
All life is related
And it enables us to construct with confidence
The complex tree that represents the history of life
Our planet, the Earth, is as far as we know
Unique in the universe; it contains life
Here plants and animals proliferate in such numbers
That we still have not even named all the different species
Darwin's great insight revolutionized the way in which we see the world
We now understand why there are so many different species
[Carl Sagan]
Every cell is a triumph of natural selection
And we're made of trillions of cells (Within us is a little universe)
Those are some of the things that molecules do
Given four billions years of evolution (We are, each of us, a multitude)
Now how did the molecules of life arise?
[Attenborough]
It began in the sea
Some 3 thousand million years ago
Complex chemical molecules began to clump together
These were the "seeds"
From which the tree of life developed
They were able to split, replicating themselves
As bacteria do
[Sagan]
The secrets of evolution
Are time and death
There's an unbroken thread that stretches
From those first cells to us
(refrain)
[Jane Goodall]
There isn't a sharp line dividing humans
from the rest of the animal kingdom
It's a very wuzzie line
It's a very wuzzie line,
and it's getting wuzzier
All the time
We find animals doing things that we,
In our arrogance,
Used to think was "just human"
(refrain)
[Attenborough]
Its continued survival now rests in our hands
