Science occasionally sneaks into this blog.  That is because being a scientist is often more than just test tubes, critters, graphs and figures. It is a way of thinking. It is also a part of culture, who we are and where we live. Science is the universe that we live in; science is us, and everything else.

David Eagleman, a neuroscientist at Baylor University in Houston, Texas, explains it succinctly and without pretense. David is one of the 'new' scientists; those that dare to be unconventional, think outside the stuffy box, and speak about possibilities. We need more like him.
