    Is there a real science called Biogeometry?

    yes, there's a legitimate biogeometry (study of the shapes of species, pretty much). But there's also "sacred geometry" which makes use (abuse?) of it as well. That might confuse things.

    There is a legitimate study being done, not to be mistaken for the Egyptian hand waving stuff.

    I'm allergic to buzzwords. On the other hand, I guess that makes me a pioneer of the brand-new interdisciplinary field of immunolinguistics! :tongue2:

    yeah, I've been having trouble with "dynamic", "chaos", and "complex systems" myself...
