This is the companion piece to Priest. The most obvious similarity is in the perspective from above, but there is also a connection in the subject matter. Mark Wiliamson is my other great friend those university days, but his life has been geared towards the physical sciences rather than the religious. What strikes me about his pursuit is his romantic, even heroic, view of what it means to be a scientist. Here, he is looking into the world, as if it is all there is and all that matters.
