“Darwin’s idea, evolution through natural selection, actually explains the meaning of life; It is the biggest single idea ever, Its breadth and scope enormous, its means so perfectly economic. Its capacity to shock and excite persist, to this day.

Such emotion and passion over a search for essential truth are also the substance of art, such belief and relevance its goals. The myriad ways of understanding and expressing the beauty of life are a constant inspiration.

There’s an infinite number of ways to get to the same point.”
