Science in poetry

If mankind is to remember the basic ideas of scientific understanding, when few have access to the ideas daily, then we need to find ways to insert it into culture.

It's great to sing about bitches and bling. But it's more important to remind people about more than just social stuff. It would be a good and noble effort to work with artists to make a dent in culture.

Memes fight for survival like Dawkins argued in the Selfish Gene. Scientists must assist this meme adaptation. One way is to get people to sing and hum to the important ideas in science.
