What transcends the linear aspect of our lives is the moves we make out of our way, away from our interests, for those least expecting.

RNA Catalyzed Electron Transfer on Early Earth
A new study shows how complex biochemical transformations may have been possible under conditions that existed when life began on the early Earth.
The study shows that RNA is capable of catalyzing electron transfer under conditions similar to those of the early Earth. Because electron transfer, the moving of an electron from one chemical species to another, is involved in many biological processes – including photosynthesis, respiration and the reduction of RNA to DNA – the study’s findings suggest that complex biochemical transformations may have been possible when life began.

Broken no more.
All that you feel, all that hurt, all the loss are just silly thoughts that can be dispensed with.
The realization that you weren’t that special to them.
All you had with them was just a product of the times, the associated conditions, and the lack of other factors.
New factors, different conditions, and further along the fourth dimension comes the genuine heartbreak that no matter what changes it will never be. Not again. Never again.
That is part of the beauty of all literature. You discover that your longings are universal longings, that you’re not lonely and isolated from anyone. You belong.

Carnivorous Plant Proves ‘Junk’ DNA Unnecessary
Genes make up about two percent of the human genome. The rest consists of a genetic material known as noncoding DNA, and scientists have spent years puzzling over why this material exists in such voluminous quantities. Now, a new study offers an unexpected insight: the large majority of noncoding DNA — which is abundant in many living things — may not actually be needed for complex life, according to research set to appear in the journal Nature.
The clues lie in the genome of the carnivorous bladderwort plant, Utricularia gibba. The U. gibba genome is the smallest ever to be sequenced from a complex, multicellular plant. The researchers who sequenced it say that 97 percent of the genome consists of genes — bits of DNA that code for proteins — and small pieces of DNA that control those genes.
