The previous post was a side effect of an email conversation with a friend
"Is the carbon atom in a human any different from the carbon atom in a lump of coal? We are all the same - and the subconscious knows it in ways most peoples’ consciousness never will."
"Hold infinity in the palm of your hand" - the man had some insight. I only ever felt this when I was studying biology - it seemed like we were studying death more than life, in many aspects of molecular biology. And that goes even for ‘cutting edge’ research. A single virus, so much smaller than anything we can normally see, dances, dances, in kaleidoscopic colours*. And there we were, deaf-blind people, trying to understand it by the vibrations we felt on our palm. We said, ‘If we do this, the dancing stops. We can’t feel the beats anymore. Ah! We know what makes the virus dance’
When, actually, all we knew was how the virus stopped.”
