Dance to the Tune of Life: Biological Relativity
The plates positioned on the pages of the book clearly show the relation the planets share with the whole of the solar system. This gives us a great sense of how we fit into the picture generally described. Einstein’s theory of relativity is placed in perspective with the nature of our solar system. This is put in perspective with life in Denis Noble’s enlightening new book, Dance to the Tune of Life.
Life encompasses much more than the biological significance we study in universities. Noble recognizes subtle elements of the cosmos that support life. Consequently, the book provides a vision that helps the reader define how the onset of life emerged out of the grand scheme of the universe’s design.
One of the more impressive ideas centers on mathematical insights at cellular and cosmological levels simultaneously. In particular, spirals, parabolic curves, circles, spheres, and other geometric observations govern the rational behind organic and inorganic matter connections.
The illustrations are both vibrant and clarifying, giving this title a sparkle that compels you to imagine how each concept fits into the larger scheme. I commend this author for relishing the subtle reminders of what makes this inquiry important. It’s a best read.
