54. most scientists I know get crazy happy studying how amazing it all is.

When I think of evolution I do think of an urge "upward" if
you will -- there is a force of life, something unchanging as
it animates everything coming into and going out of existence.

That force motivates evolution, it urges change, it restores
balance, it is everywhere, always.

In evolution I see the mad energy of creativity, gone wild,
purposeful, creating and recreating, trying new things*
discarding what doesn't work, doing more of what's working and
making it even cooler, and so on and so on and you know what
a crazy amazing world and universe we have. It's going to
keep going long after we're gone. You can dive into fascination
for the rest of your life and never come out, it's that bottomless.

* I don't mean this to sound like there's an external
Creator. I mean from within every particle of everything in
existence, this creative process is happening.
