You know?

Here's this "encapsulation" of the Gen-
etic Molecular Biology Problem, just
sitting-there, as a "School" with spec-
ific respect to that Problem, but folks
who want to operate-upon "the gen-
ome" are oblivious to it, plunging, full
speed ahead, into 'trial and error ap-
proaches' to 'manipulating' "the gen-
ome", when, right-there, is the stuff
that they =Need= to understand be-
for even thinking of 'manipulating'
"the genome".

This self-contained "encapsulation"
of Life-coding-Life has 3-D E cours-
ing through it. The 3-D E =Need=
to be understood =Before= 'man-
ipulating' "the genome".

"The genome" can only be trashed
if it is 'operated-upon' without, first,
understanding molecular-'level' 3-D E.

Yet folks're doing exactly that.

Because they 'think' "the genome" is

All that 'thought' is is a Sorry instance
of folks' being 'blinded' by other folks'
defining "science" to 'be' "doing what
enables $ profits".

It's all right-there in the fact that this
"encapsulation" of Molecular Genetics
has been 'overlooked'.

It's Damned-Sorrowful.

Vast-Opportunity-to-Understand, be-
ing 'moved away from'.

Because Science has been 'displaced
by a 'science is big-business' mentality.

It's Shame-Filled that it's so.
