Looking for the Way: Two Systems of a Small Planet and How the Universe Works
By: Jeremy Flint (author)Paperback
1 - 3 days availability
A blend of natural history, science, social and political philosophy, wrapped up in a humorous autobiographical narrative. Look around...have you ever wondered how all this works? What is the goal of life, its object or purpose and what is the best way to achieve that goal? Me, too, so I embarked on a journey to find the fundamental law of the Universe. Sometimes you simply cannot see the wood for the trees. Two systems of a small planet and how the Universe works. Jeremy Flint embarks upon an attempt to explain his findings. He feels he will fail from the outset, as most people have no interest in the overall puzzle in which they are embedded; they are simply too busy trying to make it through life's journey. The overall picture is hard to see with so much noise drowning out any perceivable signal. Sometimes there isn't time to sit around and wonder why the wheel is turning when you simply have to hold on tight just to get by.
Jeremy Flint worked his way up the career ladder, though at meetings he introduced himself as a "time-served electrician working my way down" as he often felt his career progress always took him further away from the truth he was seeking. On his lapel badge was "Experimental Specialist", about as high as a technician could get without turning to the dark side of administration or management. He always preferred science and the laws of physics; projects and people came and went but the laws of physics remained intact, off-limits to change by administration and management, who would have happily changed them if they could! But they seemed content to rearrange chains of command and working structures ad infinitum. Meanwhile, he evolved from one project to the next, making things work in accordance with the established laws of physics and engineering. So most of his story is set in an apparently bygone time, though there are remarkable similarities with today, even though three decades have elapsed.
