…, biologists all over the world are trying to decipher the language of DNA and the genes within… oh look up in the redwoods, way up high, you can see the genes! They’re like Christmas lights scattered along a string of DNA. Ain’t it beautiful?
I'm such a weirdo (& I wasn't even on any drugs when this happened:) When I went back to school to get my Biology degree, I, of course, had to take a year of Calculus. I love Calculus! But the overly rigid structure of acquiring the knowledge is a bit of a drag.
One day I walked out of class and could see differential equations in the leaves of a tree, describing how they take the shape that they do.
And ... when I discovered fractal geometry, it was all over for me.
