“We will never know completely who we are until we understand why the universe is constructed in such a way that it contains living things.” —Lee Smolin, The Life of the Cosmos

COPERNICUS IS DEAD. Yes, I know the famous astronomer died in 1543. That’s not what I mean. Nor do I mean that the Copernican theory—that the earth revolves around the sun, and not the other way around—is dead. But Copernicus’s heliocentric revolution was not merely a scientific revolution. It also became (in hands other than his) an intellectual revolution that denied that man has a special place in the cosmos. New discoveries, however, are reversing the lesson of Copernicus. We seem to live in a universe in which we do have a special position of importance. The latest scientific research shows that we apparently inhabit a world specifically crafted for us.
