How do we explain self-awareness in the first place? Or is it just an illusion? We learn more and more about the chemical reactions that keep us alive, but somehow, we are more than the collective set of chemical reactions, biochemical structures and firing neurons.

A Mix in the Sciences 10/18/19

The soil would be mathematics in which all of the sciences are firmly planted. Math is the language of science. The roots would be physics. Physics is the study of energy, and without energy, there would be nothing else. Einstein, in fact, demonstrated the mathematical relationship between mater and energy in his famous equation. Chemistry would be the trunk. Chemistry is the study of matter, which encompasses everything in our experience with the exception of pure energy. Because everything is made of matter, all other disciplines are the branches of the tree, all related to chemistry.
