Sorry but Dan Brown does not have his science right
Dan Brown, science is criminal
BROWN – ORIGIN – 2017
This book is essential, first and for all because of the
picture on the cover, the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain.
That’s the most folkloric and anecdotic aspect of the book. It is all based on
some famous and important places and monuments in Spain and only Spain, with a
fair share in Catalonia, which is Spain. I will not enumerate all the places.
There are too many apart from this church in Barcelona, but let me give the
second most important place, the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao. Let’s say here
that, if we only look at the touristic places covered by and described in the book, then we will fall in the touristic
trap this aspect constitutes and then the book is no better than a guide for
uncultivated people to whom a benevolent author is providing some cultural
enrichment. The book is so much more than that, even if it is that too.
But never forget the earth and the cosmos are living beings
and their lives are cyclical and we do not know the operating system and the
programs of this cosmos, of this earth. And we will never know it completely because
we can only build a model of the real world and that model is always limited,
especially when a machine that is programmed in a certain way tries to replace
our imaginary and inventive mental power.
