I’ve decided to read Crichton’s Jurassic Park and about a third of the way through I came upon this quote:
“Real life isn’t a series of interconnected events occurring one after another like beads strung on a necklace. Life is actually a series of encounters in which one event may change those that follow in a wholly unpredictable, even devastating way. That’s a deep truth about the structure of the universe. But, for some reason, we insist on behaving as if it we not true.”
This book is amazing and denser than I thought it would be. Either I’m not as smart as I thought or my science muscles have atrophied. Regardless, it’s nice to come back to an author you haven’t experienced in a while. After all, “ER” was his creation as was Five Patients, which I read in HS.
