    I always liked geometry and the science of telling stories (written, verbal), but I feared math like my father. Now I add a late appreciation of math and... with my youth gone like so many... history too.

    One of the original questions here once was, "Non-science interests?" I love curiosity, reading, movies, forum participation, dirt-bikes, camping, hunting, fishing and the Missouri river, ... in short everything Tom Sawyer would have loved. Ha, ha, but what is there to love that is not science?

    Unfortunately, in youth, the claustrophobia of classrooms once cramped my comfort zone like Tom, above. I'd supposedly had reading comprehension & spatial ability skills in the top few USA %'s... but I largely wasted my exceptional luck. It is now painfully unveiled in my abysmal failure of appropriate academic achievement. Whoops. I am now much older & maybe a shade wiser.

    I've loved any machine no matter the size, there is a sameness to them all; Einstein, Poincare must have loved them too. I find we live in a mechanical, symmetrical realm between the most and the least. One limit (c) is the maximum length something may travel in the shortest amount of time... and the other () is the shortest something may travel in the maximum amount of time.

    And yet they both appear not just constant, but totally interchangeable in every way... in every way lowly miscreants like I can conceive... just as though they are inversely proportional. The 'Relativity of Space' laws that exist beyond the atomic quantum shell... and quantum reality laws that lie within it... must somehow be the same... and thee dice will one day reveal their secret. I reach, and sometimes grasp, but... my grip shall surely slip partially unfulfilled too, during my fleet mortal wisp of allotted sand. So many tocks to delight, so few ticks to do it. --Wes Tausend
