Read full description of the books:
I am all for books of little anecdotes concerning the wonder of outer space, so I thought this book would be right up my alley. This book is part of the Wooden Books series, a beautifully-put-together collection of volumes covering topics - according to the back jacket - from feng shui and grammar to love, 'the miracle of trees,' dragons, and weaving. Hmmm.
There are some very neat points in this book, but things tend to fall too far towards the New Age numerology side of the spectrum for me to really get on board. It's undoubtedly cool that the solar system is so chock-full of repeating proportions - when you see ice halos around the sun it's an exact replica of the orbits of Mercury and Venus; the Trojan asteroid clusters form an equilateral triangle with Jupiter, and several equilateral triangles inscribed within it gives you the orbit of the earth. But the pseudo-mystical way this was presented was a little off putting to me, and I would much rather the space been dedicated to ideas on why these proportions would occur. The closest we get to that is a rather baffling declaration near the end that all these harmonies "probably constitute evidence for the reality of a conscious quantum holographic universe." Which I dunno, maybe? I know there's a hypothesis that our universe is holographic, and I'll be all for reading about this. But this book pretty much tosses around some pretty illustrations and ambiguous numerology and then drops that idea without ever explaining what it really means or how it fits into anything else.
There's interesting stuff in here, absolutely, but it almost felt condescending at times. It tried too hard to be profound with a subject that's profound without need for embellishment.
