RE: The elegant nature of science
Here's a neat little video illustrating the recent Geologic history of the Western United States.

It goes into how the Sierra and Coastal Mountains formed their distinct North-South parallel formation, how millions of years of subduction in the Eastern Pacific formed what is now the San Andreas Fault, and how the shifting of the Pacific Plate along the fault greatly expanded the interior of North America from the Late Cenozoic to today, a process that's taken about 18 million years.

Geology is frickken trippy, man.

Watching the Carl Sagan video I understand the concept but can’t visualize it in my 3rd dimensional brain.

Scientists Just Found Proof of a Fourth Dimension

Lost Native American Ancestor Revealed in Ancient Child’s DNA

https://news.nationalgeographic.com/2018...ia-genome/

A baby girl who lived some 11,500 years ago survived for just six weeks in the harsh climate of central Alaska, but her brief life is providing a surprising and challenging wealth of information to modern researchers.

Her genome is the oldest-yet complete genetic profile of a New World human. But if that isn’t enough, her genes also reveal the existence of a previously unknown population of people who are related to—but older and genetically distinct from— modern Native Americans.

The invisible and the non-existent look very much alike

Angling for sperm ™, so to speak Rolleyes

"A dwarf male is fused to her underside, essentially acting as a permanent sperm provider."

"Once a male finds a mate, he bites into her, eventually fusing with her tissue and gaining sustenance through her blood stream. Scientists have known about this bizarre reproductive strategy because they’ve seen dead males latched onto dead females, but people have never seen it in the wild—until now."

Wow - the cadaver only slightly resembles the living thing - what a beautiful creature! All those tendrils look like fiber optic filament - probably keeps the food coming around, like the big light up front.

Sure it has suck-up dudes hanging all over it - that is one fancy fish. Wink
