This book 'Origin' is written by Dan Brown. His novel makes me feel that he has so deeply investigated on the subject he wants to write about. This depth is so tremendous that I hardly distinguish between imagination and facts. He is able to do so as always. This is so surprising. At the same time, reading it made me have a sense that is similar with when I read 'Homo Deus'.
In addition, the theme setting is also very interesting. It is about AI (science) and religion. This has been a prolonged discussion so far from the aspect of contradicted explanation for human being. This book is face with this most-difficult-ever problem and described its future prediction with a quite realistic feeling.
The present is shaped by accumulation of the past. And the future will be formed by the accumulation of sequential present moments. In other words, living in the present moment is to create the future. In further other words, telling the present means to think about the future.
How you capture the present moment, how you position it in the steame of a long history, and how you direct it. These mean that you are living in a moment and at the same time you live in the future.
