“Language exerts hidden power, like the moon on the tides.”

—Rita Mae Brown, American feminist writer

I have just finished reading the book Fundamentals — Ten Keys to Reality by Frank Wilczek.  Frank is a former winner of the Nobel Prize for physics and more recently was awarded the Templeton Prize.

As a former science teacher, I was drawn to this book to better help me understand how our universe works and how we as human beings fit into the big picture.

Examining the universe within each of us and our relationships to one another is at least as intriguing as the world of particles and forces that shape our world.

In many ways, it is even more challenging because there is no mathematical wizardry to describe them.


Where is the force of language exerting a pull on your personal tides?  How can you use it as a renewable energy source to power your life?
