Hi bionetters;
In a discussion about Darwin here in the department, we have a vague
recollection of a quote that the essence is:  when first anchored at the
Galapolos, he defined the shoreline as formless and not until he got unto the
shore was he able to attribute form by seeing and identifying the organisms.
Can anyone out there place this quote and the source or are we suffering from a
shared delusion?  Thanks in advance.
