Now you can see why DNA is also very interesting for scientists doing engineering on a molecular scale: it copies itself, can move itself and creates all kinds of things. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DNA_nanotechnology
Suffering is asking from life what it can never give you.

Indeed, vedana paccaya tanha and all that!

I actually remember seeing a shortened version for one of our TV science programs a few years ago!

in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

to be honest, I agree with you...
But it's fascinating to see just what some of our skandas are made up of... and really, if some seek miracles, they need never seek or extend beyond who they are....

I merely posted it to give some insight into just what makes us (physically) tick....

interesting that so many inroads have been made into being able to see "how we work" and yet, still the finest inner details of Mind, flummox even the most advanced head doctors.....!

Funny how one can discover such nice sutta's by reading a seemingly unrelated thread :popcorn:
