Example text

The meteorite seems to be from Mars, ejected when an asteroid made an impact on Mars, some fifteen million years ago. That the meteorite has its origin on Mars Scene 6. Luck 37 is fairly generally accepted among the relevant specialists. However, the interpretation of the evidence as indicating life on Mars has been heavily disputed. Sceptics argue that there may well have been ‘pollution’ from Earth, picked up during the thirteen thousand years that this meteorite has been in Antarctica, ‘waiting to be found’.

Scene 4 Dependence In billions of galaxies the universe made itself from dust stars from stars dust. Much later, from dust from stars from dust from stars from dust swirled our Sun and from leftovers the Earth, our home. Thus, after ten billion years, there was evening and there was morning: the first day. After some ten billion years, two-thirds of the history of the universe so far, the Earth and the Sun formed. As far as the Earth is concerned, it was not until then that there is a first day. If we are interested in a religious or secular view of our own lives, those first ten billion years without days may seem dull and unimportant.

And reverse: ideas, beliefs and desires influence our bodies. Regarding humans as material beings challenges our self-image. Material processes go their way; they are not ‘about’ anything. The sounds we utter and the markings we scribble on paper are ‘about something’ – we write about love, we do arithmetic, we put down on paper how to prepare an apple pie. If thinking is just a complex chemical and electrical process going on in our bloody brains, why would it be different from digestion which goes on in our bowels?
