  1. Years ago I had a bf who was a marketing man. I had just started my degree in biology and I was enthusing about translocation in plants. He started complaining that science reduced the world to formulas and mechanics and distracted people from natural beauty. I was shocked and told him that I found it very beautiful. Beautiful and incredible.

    I said to him “When you look at a tree do you never wonder how it works? How it changes colour, why it changes colour? Have you never wondered how the tree can stand outside in freezing weather that would kill a human and then burst back into life in the Spring?”

    He said he hadn’t. Needless to say our relationship did not last.

    • You’re totally right there, understanding how things work does not at all diminish the beauty of things. It enhances it really, or better stated it opens another layer of beauty if you see how all those details connect on another, and then one more, and yet another, and another level…It’s like zooming in and out into a Michelangelo painting, from an overview, to the beauty of details, to the seemingly random distribution of particles that make up the color which turn out to be just ike looking into the stars again.
      Reminds me a lot of that one Simpsons-intro
