This week, a documentary series… but one which was anything but boring and pedantic. It taught the history of mankind from ancient times to the edges of the new century, chaining together some of the most amazing discoveries of science in ways you probably never knew before. Five quotes:
“…if the link has never been made before, nobody knows it’s there.”
It’s more of a crazy pinball, with ideas bouncing to and fro…
“Because there is nowhere else to look.”
Profit, personal theology, individual social mores, and simple curiosity are much more potent…
“The key to why things change is the key to everything.”
Despite jokes to the contrary, Al Gore didn’t create the internet. But the host of this show might have, and even if he didn’t, he was advocating some of the ideas years before it became a reality. See where it might have begun, and the unknown relationship of so many other things, this week on Friday @ 8/7 Central.
