Yesterday I pontificated about the wonders of the natural human body. Today I pontificate about the wonders of natural science.
I was riding my electric scooter from the old folks home to the doctor's office and back, and suddenly marveled at the miracle I was performing. I had taken a little plastic box of chemicals, and used the electricity they produced and the power of magnetism to propel me along my way with no more effort than steering and pushing the "go" button.
What a wonder. Mix some chemicals, string some wires and away we go.
It's all in mankind's reach. Harness the natural energy in the right way and you can send a message to outer space as we have done with "Voyager". It all comes from the natural elements and the mind of man.
We have even harnessed gravity, for that is what all those satellites have done. They have harnessed gravity so they can hang in space and watch hurricanes and weather.
Just wait until we harness the energy of those hurricanes that now plague us. Won't that be awesome.
Well, it boggles my mind.
