Symphony of Science Instrumental – Children Of Africa


[Jacob Bronowski]
Man is a singular creature He has a set of gifts which make him unique among the animals So that unlike them, he is not a figure in the landscape He is the shaper of the landscape [Alice Roberts]
We are all children of Africa They say this is where it all began [Bronowski]
In a parched African landscape Man first put his foot to the ground [Roberts]
Africa was our only home for tens of thousands of years until a small handful of people made their way
out of Africa [Carolyn Porco]
These beings with soaring imagination Eventually flung themselves and their machines
Into interplanetary space These beings with soaring imagination Eventually flung themselves and their machines
Into interplanetary space [Roberts]
We are all children of africa This landscape has been home to humans
Two hundred thousand years [Porco]
We have come so far All of this is cause for great celebration We have come so far This is a story about us [Roberts]
Those early Europeans Were people like you and me But it is humbling
When you see the challenges they faced People like you and me Overcame the Neaderthals People like you and me Made it through the ice age [Porco]
These beings with soaring imagination Eventually flung themselves and their machines
Into interplanetary space [Jane Goodall]
We are not the only beings
With personalities, minds, and feelings Chimpanzees have very clear personalities [Robert Sapolsky]
Take a chimp brain foetally And let it go two or three more rounds of division
And out comes symphonies and ideology [Goodall]
We are not the only beings [Neil de Grasse Tyson]
Everything that we are
That distinguishes us from chimps Emerges from that one percent
Difference in DNA [Roberts]
People like you and me Overcame the Neaderthals People like you and me Made it through the ice age [Porco]
These beings with soaring imagination Eventually flung themselves and their machines
Into interplanetary space These beings with soaring imagination Eventually flung themselves and their machines
Into interplanetary space [David Attenborough]
Using his burgeoning intelligence,
This most successful of all mammals Has exploited the environment to produce food
For an ever increasing population. Instead of controlling the environment
For the benefit of the population Perhaps it’s time we controlled the population
To allow the survival of the environment CC by Anderson Lobo
