Exactly, Sharon. It's the chronology that I find fascinating. That, and the way in which particles evolve as cooling continues. I had never considered that kind of evolution. I had assumed that atoms, protons, neutrons, quarks, etc. had always existed.

Fascinating about the Venus de Willendorf. Your citation was the first I'd heard of her. Had to look her up. I was surprised by her corpulence. For whatever reason, in my mind I had always pictured western ancients as relatively slender folk.

Our window to the past history of humans has opened more widely with the advent of the sequenced genome. We can actually trace our journey out of Africa and see who went where.

We live in an era of fascinating scientific discoveries.

As a gardener: When planning for a year, I plant corn. When planning for decades, I plant trees. When planning for life, I train and educate people.
