Despite their complex structures, molecules most likely do not take time to ponder the ways they fit into the big scheme of things. They just are. But when zillions of molecules bond into organized, functional systems, we get everything, including you and me – and some seven billion others. Chuck Champlin, a writer, journalist, and a former Walt Disney Co. communications executive, seeks inspiration via deep imaginative journeys into the infinitely vast and invisibly tiny realms of the cosmos in this small book with a big message. In observing molecular assemblies, we can see that physically matter came together, possibly all on its own, to create life and thinking minds. It is profound that our minds, perhaps born from accidental creativity, can intentionally assemble marvelous new things. To think like a molecule is to be aware of the physical foundations in matter that have given rise to our thoughts – and from there, it’s onward into the realm of pure imaginations and the twinkling stars of our infinite potential.
