“Suppose time is a circle, bending back on itself. The world repeats itself, precisely, endlessly.” Alan Lightman
I’ve been delinquent on my book reporting. I am behind a few. The Accidental Universe by Alan Lightman is a wonderful collection of essays guaranteed to keep your brain tumbling for days.
My favorite segment was when he explained why bees make hexagonal wax compartments in the honeycombs. Turns out that the hexagon is a shape that can be made and fitted together with the least amount of wax, and it will always fit anywhere so bees can work independently on their chambers and connect them later – assured that the comb will be perfect. Amazing!!
