The souls have arrived at the mineral state, and we now must ascertain the orgin of its motor or its life. We know within the mineral lies concealed the potencies of an immortal being.
Chemical force is death ---balanced, still, and motionless. Spiral motion is the motion type of life. It is the true motion of life. It is a spiritual screw, and with all the mechanical advantages of a screw, it penetrates the universe of matter. The spiral varies in magnitude from the infinite to the infinitesimal.

The Gibbs free energy of activation, ΔG*, may be separated into enthalpic and entropic terms, if required, by using another relationship from equilibrium thermodynamics,

ΔG* = ΔH* - TΔS*

(where ΔH* is the enthalpy, and ΔS* the entropy, of activation).

Sorry - no one needs to see anything from the Code of Federal Regulations today. It's too depressing.

Because none of us can be expert in all areas, everyone has to lean, at least to some extent, on the judgment of others who are knowledgeable. Evidence of successful replication is another powerful factor that can inspire confidence. Together with the review service of a respected journal, it is repeated trials of a finding that offers the most substantial reason to place your trust in what you read.

The book closest to me is the "Ugly Daddy and Ugly Baby" book. I don't think there are seven sentences in the entire thing.

So, for this exercise, I'll use the next closest book: Specials by Scott Westerfield:

"They met Ho back at the ambush site. He'd managed to get Tachs awake, and had put in a call to the rest of the Cutters. They were twenty minutes away, bringing extra boards and screaming for revenge.

Don't worry about getting even, we'll be visiting the Smokies soon enough, Shay said, without bothering to mention the problem with that plan: No one knew where the New Smoke was. In fact, no one was sure if it was anywhere at all. Since the original Smoke had been destroyed, the Smokies kept moving from one spot to another. And now that they had four brand-new Special Circumstances hover boards, they'd be even harder to pin down."

I'd do this meme, but I'm at work at the rabbinic library right now, the nearest book is in Hebrew, and I don't have the ability on my LJ to type in Hebrew.


Unless that comes out in something other than blocks.
