 In the Chaos Manor that is our family's daily round, Kurzweil's web site and Vic's List and our own discussions are the 3 constants. Kurzweil had a great article on the gravitational waves.

Then Jeff's email mentioning Newton arrived.

That led to her idiot Dad asking the daughter if medicine had arrived at its equivalent of Newtonian physics. Eddy said, "yes, but just barely. In practice we are barely past the Newcomen steam engine.

That led to an expression of hope from Eddy that, in her lifetime, medicine will get to what would be the equivalent of Maxwell's equations for the body's messaging. But, Kurzweil's dream of immortality will remain as permanent elusive as time travel. The machines will have to do the exploring.
