Science, Philosophy, and the Media: Why the Extremophile Choice is such a hard sell

“A point of view can be a dangerous luxury when substituted for insight and understanding.”  — Marshal McLuhan 

“Almost all new ideas have a certain aspect of foolishness when they are first produced” — Alfred North Whitehead 

God, I love to talk about ‘Natural Philosophy’! Terry hardly gets a word in edgewise. But you’ll be happy to hear I edited this video down to 15 minutes; not so happy maybe about the half dozen or so cuts, with missing segues. For instance: WHEN I SAY “WE’RE NOT [ANIMALS]” I’M REFERRING TO “WILD” ANIMALS DEFINED BY STABLE INTERRELATIONSHIPS. (If you don’t know your Darwin, and you don’t get this, I wouldn’t blame you if you “X” me at this point.)
