A longing for paradise regained forces the flow of nanoscience

Abstract:
Many cultures share a similar myth of a time when humans lived in pristine communion with their surroundings, each their own visions of Eden. But then, the stories go, humans transgressed against the laws of nature through attainment of knowledge. For this crime, humans were forever cast out of paradise. The memory of what life was like before this evolutionary fluke of “knowledge” plagued mankind has survived within us only as a vague longing for Eden. In the autumn of 2003, I found my Eden at the edge of the North American continent on a rough patch of coast called Big Sur.
