    Bill’s analysis of the construction of the gold plates is frickin’ genius, makes me want to go back to Palmyra to construct a set of gold plates myself.

    Great podcast!! Love those clips… I have read Pollan’s book already, it makes sense from my untrained/hobbies mind. Excited to learn more about some of those other guys.

    Here is an unsolicited recommendation, A MUST READ!
    “A Beautiful Question: Finding Nature’s Deep Design by Frank Wilczek. He won The Nobel Prize in Physics 2004 for the discovery of asymptotic freedom in the theory of the strong interaction. He is world renown, American theoretical physicist, mathematician.

    After the Alan Watts clip, I was going to comment that you’re one step away from Terence McKenna. Then you started talking about psychedelics! Looking forward to the missing 45 minutes. Good discussion.

    Glenn, if you are interested in time, have you ever read Hawking’s “A Brief History of Time?” It is good, and quite accessible.
