This highly interdisciplinary book highlights many of the ways in which chemistry plays a crucial role in making life an evolutionary possibility in the universe. Cosmologists and particle physicists have often explored how the observed laws and constants of nature lie within a narrow range that allows complexity and life to evolve and adapt.
Here, these anthropic considerations are diversified in a host of new ways to identify the most sensitive features of biochemistry and astrobiology. Celebrating the classic work of Lawrence J.

So what is the point of exercise? I used to think I should exercise to look good.
Fitness of the Cosmos for Life
Looking good, if it happens, is just a bonus. According to Dr. Dean Ornish, in his excellent book The Spectrum , regular exercise causes changes in the body at the genetic level : improved function of mitochondria, the energy cells of the body. Improved weight control, lower cholesterol, better sleep, better joints and strength, flexibility, stamina and balance. There is no other way to improved bodily function, no shortcut, than exercise. Bottom Line: If you feel anxious or down, exercising is the best thing for you. The result is greater self confidence and well being.
Exercise is essential for body, mind and spirit. From an exercise standpoint, lets start with basic calorie expenditure. Which means that you can easily burn calories per hour , or more. I keep this picture in my phone to remind me of this. Exercise that burns calories per hour raises the heart level and provides a workout for the cardio-pulmonary system, as well as the entire body, if you use hiking poles.
Hikers are creative. Research shows that spending time outdoors increases attention spans and creative problem-solving skills by as much as 50 percent.
I run several hiking groups right now, one in San Luis Obispo , and one in San Francisco , with a combined membership of about people. Running will eventually wear out your knees, yet hiking is a low impact sport. Even the Arthritis Foundation recommends hiking. Hiking is something you can do for most of your life.
