The Astonishing Hypothesis

"You," your joys and your sorrows, your memories and your ambitions, your sense of personal identity and free will, are in fact no more than the behavior of a vast assembly of nerve cells and their associated molecules.

The Astonishing Hypothesis: The Scientific Search For The Soul is a book written by no ordinary person. It is written by Francis Crick, the co-discoverer of the DNA double Helix structure in 1953 and a Noble laureate - 1963. Died in 2004 due to Colon Cancer.

My attention was caught to the DNA world after watching a TV interview with James Watson, who was Francis Colleague and the other co-discoverer of the double Helix. I have finished reading two of Watson's books and was intrigued by his "DNA - The secret of Life" Book.

Understanding how things inside your cells work opens up a new dimension of arts and science to the frontiers of you thinking. Moreover, a great sense of appreciation to a breath taking process that bewilders your mind and leaves you totally seized by its beauty.
