Human singularity. Mind. Spirit. (Three Big Questions)
Humans on Earth are a singularity beyond animal achievements, considering genetics, neuroscience, moral, psychological, philosophical, and spiritual experience. This gives humans a unique dignity. Science has been discovering deep space, deep time, and pushing deep down into subatomic nature. On astronomical scales, we are cosmic dwarfs. But another perspective is possible: If we ask where the "deep" thoughts about this "deep" nature are, they are right here. Such thoughts are scientific, they are also philosophical and religious. We alone can ask big questions.
