“ The first men to be created and formed were called the Sorcerer of Fatal Laughter, the Sorcerer of Night, Unkempt, and the Black Sorcerer … They were endowed with intelligence, they succeeded in knowing all that there is in the world. When they looked, instantly they saw all that is around them, and they contemplated in turn the arc of heaven and the round face of the earth … [Then the Creator said]: 'They know all … what shall we do with them now? Let their sight reach only to that which is nea ...more ”
[close] From the very first telescope, humanity knew that somewhere out in the infinite universe was another civilization of organisms. We wandered for centuries, exploring the darkest depths of the expanding infinity, yet it was not enough. As humans, we were not satisfied. We searched and searched, until finally, they became curious. This time, they came to us. Upon their first arrival, there was only peace. It was a joyous moment, until our human side showed once again. As their advanced abilities were revealed, humanity felt inferior. Inferiority was weakness, and everybody knows the human race doesn't stand for weaknesses. We assassinated the aliens with some hope that maybe we could extract the DNA from their bodies, but for the first time in the history of humankind, we were not strong enough. This was no longer a fight for our world. We were fighting for our survival. "This is the beginning of the end."

[close] Questo gruppo è pensato per leggere saggi, romanzi a tema, atlanti (ebbene si, anche gli atlanti vanno letti) e tutti quei libri che ci fanno scoprire come funzionano le regole che governano il nostro unico pianeta Terra e l'Universo nel quale viviamo. Ma contestualmente alle meraviglie presenti purtroppo emergono anche le problematiche che mettono a repentaglio tutta questa unicità e quindi verranno proposte come letture anche inchieste, saggi sull'inquinamento e sul climate change. Gli argomenti da snocciolare sono dunque tanti e tutti di uguale importanza: ecologia, astronomia, geologia, scienza, biologia, scienze naturali, inquinamento, effetto serra e surriscaldamento globale, sviluppo delle epidemie ed anche evoluzione della medicina. L'idea è quella di leggere ogni mese (o ogni due, in base alla lunghezza della lettura scelta) un testo che ci faccia approfondire in modo scientifico-divulgativo gli argomenti citati sopra; non verranno scelti testi troppo difficili o tecnici in modo tale che tutti possano intraprendere questo percorso alla scoperta delle regole che governano l'universo.

[close] The plan for this group is to build a community of eco-conscious individuals and expand our knowledge by reading & exploring books. We will have one book per month and will arrange a google hangout/zoom session to discuss the book.
