Die a hero or live long enough to become the villain. Or something. If I had to go job hunt? I know: Don’t bother putting Microsoft Office skills. Assumed. Don’t put Customer Service. Assumed. Internet skills. Assumed. Typing speed? Super-fast who cares. Data entry? So what. Point is: Skills can also obsolete due to democratization of skills sets. That’s not a bad thing.

“The irreversible nature of reactions catalysed by P450s makes these enzymes landmarks in the evolution of plant metabolic pathways. ” https://royalsocietypublishing.org/doi/full/10.1098/rstb.2012.0426 Ok, I’m close to being satisfied that P450s MAY be similar to Chomsky’s minimalist program “Merge” magic for generative linguistics (assuming a “dynamical frustration” model / soap bubble ‘eating’ another soap bubble, ” Repulsive interactions can generate dynamical frustration and multistability, since interacting units cannot always relax to a unique equilibrium “. In Church lamba calculus I *think* it corresponds to “Lambda mu calculus” which I have to research more of, as Lambda mu calculus does logical reduction and structural reduction making it “confluent” or “convergence” (logic) – terminating. That’s part of “term rewriting”. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Constraint_programming may be of use. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lambda-mu_calculus

Everybody (ok, not everybody) wants to be Feynman and come up with a graphical language to describe complicated mathematics. Well, I gotta say, this style of “Wiring Diagram”, I like. It’s got “black boxes”, each with their own wiring diagrams and, if you like, any of these wiring diagrams can become black boxes in in bigger wiring diagrams. Basically, it’s “black boxes all the way down”. You stop at whatever level you need to work at and can ignore the levels below if you like — so long as they’re working correctly (take the inputs, produce the outputs, of the expected quality, in the expected time. In this, length of the wires indicates time. It’s a “supply and demand” graph. In this paper, they’re “peeking inside” the wiring of the black boxes to see if it can be wired better, and play around with making iterative loops by connecting “input” to the inner box instead of the outer box, which is basic “how to make fractals / recursions / loops-across-time / etc” fun. I like seeing a math theory writer inadvertently discovering computer programming. :) THE OPERAD OF TEMPORAL WIRING DIAGRAMS: FORMALIZING A GRAPHICAL LANGUAGE FOR DISCRETE-TIME PROCESSES DYLAN RUPEL AND DAVID I.

Properties vs Characteristics vs Attributes. Major hair splitting. Properties are usually general. Characteristics can be “case-by-case”. I think “attributes” are equivalent to “characteristics”.
