WOW. Nice selection. Captivating. Put me to daydream on occasion. Thanks, I needed something good to read today. I'm watching "THE BLUE PLANET : SEAS OF LIFE" on my TV, and combined with this read, I get entranced into the delicacy of Life. On a planet with no life, most minerals we know would still exist. From the elements we know we can see what we're made of. Yet, who knows how the how to create life how one pleases. Imagine a life form and build it.
Mother Nature is awesome. Riddles of my mind...

Thanks, sorry for the rambling again...
