    Feynman is definitely missed.

    This should be made into a poster for high school science and art classes. Fantastic design! And a terrific quote.

    If you want to get perverse, you can think of flowers as the plant’s genitalia, they serve a similar purpose in the plant’s reproductive system with a little help of some bees and other pollinating insects.

    Actually, an artist that only sees the aesthetics of an object is a pretty vain person and probably not a very good artist at all. I don’t know of any real artists that don’t acknowledge the wonder of the intricacy of it all and knows that makes it even more beautiful.

    I agree that this should be a poster in every science and art class—in the few places they are still taught. I use “taught” in the true sense: taught = thought.

    Mr. Feynman’s lectures are remarkable.

    I liked the story of his finding a gap in the fence at Oak Ridge. Rather than reporting it, he signed out, crawled back in through the gap, and continued until they noticed the discrepancy.

    Did you know that several species of goldenrod that coexist in an environment time the release of fragrance and pollen at different times of the day in order that they are noncompetitive for pollinating insects? I’m an artist, a horticulturist/landscape designer, and a technical writer — art and science are NEVER mutually exclusive except for those who don’t have the smarts to handle all of the information…

    I just knew it had to Dr. Richard Feynman.

    Art and Science use to be together. We need to bring them back.

    Night-Gaunt49: Amen! I like to quote C.P. Snow (Churchill’s science adviser in WW-II): “Science and the humanities have drifted apart so that neither can understand the other. As a result, we have humanities with no basis in reality, and science without morals.” The Two Cultures, 1947.
    As BA and MS in interdisciplinary studies, I can translate between them, but no one in either seems to recognize the need. A few academic organizations and movements have tried to discuss issues, but at the citizen level, it is going from separate and apathetic, to openly hostile.
