I asked the gardener how come, after all these years, the soil in my geranium pots is at roughly the same level.
For our biochemistry geeks, one mug contains both the periodic table of elements and a DNA-amino acids codon wheel.
Twenty elements — and water, too — appear to have been precisely fine-tuned in advance for highly specific biochemical roles.
