G’day! This week was busy, and just may see the completion of the current course of study – the current disk of lectures will be completed this morning, and the last of five begun at library or ye olde gaming shoppe — whichever is quieter — this coming afternoon.
My sister had to go into the hospital, but seems in better condition now, which is very, very good. Mr Eccles was being his usual bad self, playful little kitteh that he is, and seems to enjoy the strangest things, like tossed feathers, but that’s cats for you.
I did get study done at library a couple of days this week, though I’ve still got a few practice assignments ahead of me to complete, but that’s cool. The last two lectures were fun, dealing with number patterns – palindromes, black holes, locks, and other fun things to do with simple maths in interestingly complex ways.
I’ve also started on a classic by Chuck Darwin — Origin of Species — yes, THAT book. It’s a dense read, but very informative, though the science is mostly of historical value and largely supplanted by modern evolution over more than 150 years.
Evolution evolves, like any well-supported idea that continues to be of use, being fortunate enough to resist serious attempts to falsify it by scientists themselves.
Stay cool, stay brilliant, and pay no attention to fractal Tyrannosaurs if you see them. Chances are it’s all in your head.
