Many of Newton’s notebooks or memos are registered in a digital archive in the digital library at the University of Cambridge. While reading one of his notebooks, I was drawn to a particularly beautiful G. It was not concerning Newton’s famous Law of Universal Gravitation, but rather a G within the phrase “beer with Ginger instead of Hops,.” The phrase demonstrates that Newton, who achieved monumental accomplishments with his research, also maintained a perspective rooted in daily life. From gravity to ginger, his spectrum is indeed wide.
