I wanted to choose someone famous, a singer or actress; however, my parents encouraged me to write about a person who had made a real difference in the world, such as a female astronaut. I mistakenly replied that there was no such thing as a female astronaut, and that was the beginning of a journey. I did end up writing my report on Sally Ride, the first American woman to fly in space. I even dressed up as an astronaut, with silver boots and complete with my oxygen tank, and even though at the beginning I was apprehensive, afterwards I was really interested in space exploration....

Power resides in science, according to Silver, and that power is “enormous.” In the closing chapter to Remaking Eden, entitled “Tomorrow’s Children,” he recounts how “a single eccentric scientist named Kary Mullis” obliterated all “preconceived...

- Dickinson's The Spider holds a Silver Ball Paradox baffles and inspires thinkers because it wipes out the greatest of conclusions, puts us intimately in touch with the very nature of inexplicable feeling, both simultaneously implodes and explodes the mind, and of course induces a certain sensation, as Dickinson puts it, “as if the top of my head were taken off.” It seems to me that in art this is the fix we desire, where sensation obliterates logic. Dickinson's poetry is one of the few places I have so far found the paradoxic tendency so profoundly expressed.... [tags: Dickinson analysis spider Silver Ball Essays]
