Biologist

Imagine you are an atom, a phenomenon so called because of your ability to interact with other phenomenon and cause or affect a change in events that occur subsequently. Now imagine you are just hanging around minding your own business when some huge molecule, a previously formed group of atoms, comes along and scoops you up. Why? because you are available to be scooped up and the large molecule is just doing what its supposed to do. Now imagine the process happens several times until you find yourself tagged, or otherwise labeled as, "Adenine" a purine derivative that is constituent in one of the four nucleases. In other words, the single atom that you once were is now part of a larger complex and one of the four bases involved in delineating anatomical structure in almost all life forms as we know them. You've come a long way in a single paragraph, from one atom to a principle character in the theatre of life as we describe it.

Hold on, we're not done yet. As a smaller part of these larger molecules, you'll find yourself hurtling towards some processing factory where you are assembled along with other molecules into long chains, much like the train cars attached after the train engine. On the way to processing you will see rows of millions if not billions of molecules similar to yourself, all assembled, and you'll probably wonder where you fit in, lol. Before you get a chance to answer you will find you have been sequestered, processed, transported and utilized to some end well beyond your imagination as an atom. Finally the bonds that once held you close to others and remained steadfast through the many trials, will give up their compelling requirement for associations and thus render the elements to the ubiquity of existence once more; at least until the process starts again.

If you feel like an atom going through mRNA transcriptions and translation, and you would just like to learn to play some folk music on the guitar or piano starting in September, then please contact me here or visit me at www.bytes4u.ca for more music. Cheers, Mike

Medical Laboratory Technologist

I trained and worked as a Med Lab Tech from about 1984 to about 1994, with the latter years accounting for the transition into molecular virology.

Automotive Mechanic

I worked as an automotive mechanic for about 10 years when I was in my 20's, and that was a long time ago. I always loved electronics, and I remember learning about dynamos and alternators and all the regulators, and I was fascinated by how single electrons could cause such profound effects on other parts of the machinery. I enjoyed learning about automatic transmissions too, and was delighted when I got a chance to work in an automatic transmission shop. I mostly did R and R, but I did manage to re-build a few that worked. I won the best student award at my school, and selected a book on modern meteorology and climatology as my prize. Its interesting to note that the Dean for the automotive department was arrested and imprisoned for stealing cars, lol. These days I wonder how many hot cars I worked on during my apprenticeship, lol.

Molecular Virologist

Peer Review: Are you unable to separate the cream from the white stuff in medical and scientific publications? Well I can, but its probably too late:

I studied and worked at molecular virology from about 1991 through to about 2008, when I was forced out of meaningful employment because of health reasons. My M.Sc. thesis was the study of the assembly and secretion of Rubella virus-like particles in mammalian cells, although I have worked with Lassa fever virus and Ebola virus too. I now theorize on quantum perspectives, basically I view the universe from the perspective of the smallest imaginable phenomenon whose characteristics have been observed as reproducible, and I wonder what kick started the rest of it to come up with us? Let me be your peer reviewer, now!

An idea I'm dreaming up involves a 12 speaker enclosure based upon viral capsid icosahedral symmetry, larger than a hockey helmet to begin with. Each speaker will play one tone of the 12 tone octave. Its the midi and electronics bit in between the keyboard and the icosahedron structure that has me flummoxed at the moment...
