    Thank you! When the human being can be reduced to the complexity of a single-cell organism, the scientist has been trapped, as you imply, as the observer in the observed. Much scientific research has about as much impact as one molecule of emotion. Sad to waste a lifetime on little critters. Glad I'm in the arts! (Report) Reply
