I just read another physicist referring to what he probably thinks of as the anthropic principle: That the universe is fine tuned to make life possible. It is true that life as we know it is possible because the universe is the way it is. If it were different, we'd be different or non-existent. This should not suggest to anyone that it was planned that way. We are observing the universe, therefore the universe is capable of supporting observers like us. Unfortunately, we have evolved to assume a purpose for everything so we assign purposes almost automatically which, I think, blinds us to many realities. Oh well, let's get on to something more interesting!
If you want to get me a gift:
This is an extremely exciting technology -If you want to buy me a gift, this is what I want! Amazon's Kindle is a
book reader. It would be a little like carrying around 200 books but in a package smaller than a laptop. I think this is much more exciting than the mp3 players that everyone loves (including me). You buy the books online and pay less than $10. I could save a fortune and not have to add anymore
bookshelves to my house, which already looks like the city library -maybe I could even replace the books I've got
with the electronic version! Anyway, this is something you need! If you happen to know me personally, this is a
gift I would love! For Amazon's Kindle, click here!
