Work in Progress...

My method of thought and reasoning is influenced by a scientific training, if that were not so my scientific training will have been a waste and a failure.

Work in Progress...

The Rosalind Franklin's quote says there is no point in working a lot if you are not having fun.

When we work, we must feel good and have fun. In fact, in our lives, we must do what we enjoy most, follow our passions and make them our work.

If we don't do this, we will soon find ourselves in a vicious cycle of unfulfilling work, boredom, and sadness.

So let's choose well what we want to do with our lives. We should not be afraid to follow what we desire most. We must not feel limited by something or someone or forced to do something. If we are forced, we don't have fun and don't even do well at that thing.

Work in Progress...

You look at science (or at least talk of it) as some sort of demoralising invention of man, something apart from real life, and which must be cautiously guarded and kept separate from everyday existence. But science and everyday life cannot and should not be separated. Science, for me, gives a partial explanation for life. In so far as it goes, it is based on fact, experience and experiment.

Work in Progress...

Conclusion: Big helix in several chains, phosphates on outside, phosphate-phosphate inter-helical bonds disrupted by water. Phosphate links available to proteins.
