Bill Bryson finishes his list of "the four most remarkable things I know": that all life comes from single moment of creation.
What follows from it, Bill Bryson explains, gives us a reason to feel very special indeed, and it offers us the perfect standpoint from which to consider how we should treat our lives upon this earth.

This is the conclusion of Bill Bryson's Gresham College lecture marking the 350th anniversary of the birth of The Royal Society: 'An Even Shorter History of Nearly Everything'.
In the talk he spoke about the history of science and of the Royal Society, founded 350 years ago by Gresham College Professors (such as Christopher Wren and Robert Hooke) within Gresham College.
The lecture was given to 800 people within the Guildhall on the 30th of September 2010. The event was hosted in conjunction with the City of London Corporation and the Royal Society.

Bill Bryson's full lecture is available to download (like all of our lectures) in its complete form from the Gresham College website, in video, audio or text formats:

Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597. This tradition continues today with all of our five or so public lectures a week being made available for free download.
