da Vinci, Euclid and Pythagoras

Inspiring, awesome, rare, synthetic, but clashes with Claude Bernard's view that you cannot apply mathematics to biology because it is too complex, However, that clashes with Francis Bacon's view, and lauded by Bernard, that inductive reasoning solves problems. From what I have painfully observed, deductive reasoning adds words, tenure, sabbaticals, Lancet and stagnation. In public, Darwin professed to being Newtonian, but in his diary and letters to friends, candidly noted that reasoning is eveything, such that "Origins' was 'one long argument." A contemporary wrote that "Origins" is incomprehensible.

The molecule envisioned by Planck and Schrodinger is carboxylic acid. Get inside it, and you will find the history of the universe.
