The awesome silence of the place crept up on her. The spruce and pines, all still laden with snow, spread their limbs in a frozen ballet, breathing a ghostly incense from dark, arid chapels sheltered by their branches.

I see you in the light of the water, in the swaying of the young trees in the spring wind. I see you in the shadows of the great oaks, I hear your voice in the cry of the owl at night. You are the blood in my veins, and the beating of my heart. You are my first waking thought, and my last sigh before sleeping. You are - you are bone of my bone, and breath of my breath.

World’s Oldest Living Tree Can Clone Itself

The trunk of the above tree is less than 600 years old—but its roots date back to 9,550 years ago, making it the world’s oldest known living tree, scientists say. The Norway spruce, of a species commonly used as Christmas trees in Europe, was found in 2004 on a Swedish mountaintop.

The visible portion of the 13-foot-tall (4-meter-tall) “Christmas tree” isn’t ancient, but its root system has been growing for 9,550 years, according to a team led by Leif Kullman, professor at Umeå University’s department of ecology and environmental science in Sweden.

The tree’s incredible longevity is largely due to its ability to clone itself, Kullman said.

The spruce’s stems or trunks have a lifespan of around 600 years, “but as soon as a stem dies, a new one emerges from the same root stock,” Kullman explained. “So the tree has a very long life expectancy.”

Feynman is awesome.

alogan:

Richard Feynman is still a facinating individual for me. I love his books and need to read more.  I think he is a great story teller and his voice adds to the appeal.

This video overlays Dr. Feynman talking about beauty and some great video from nature to space to microbiology. It just works.

Love this one.

All kinds of interesting questions which the science knowledge only adds to the excitement, the mystery and the awe of a flower. It only adds. I don’t understand how it subtracts.
