“I am a deeply religious nonbeliever – this is a somewhat new kind of religion.” – Albert Einstein

2 New Elements have been added to the  Periodic Table…their proposed names are…flerovium (atomic symbol Fl) and livermorium (atomic symbol Lv)…are up for debate…the interesting thing about both of these elements is each is created in a lab…not naturally occurring…

so a couple of  questions arise here on the high desert at 6:04 am…if it can be made is it an element or an invention? and secondly what does “New” really mean?….

that brings me to the top ten “New” species discovered in 2011…and of the 10…my favorite is the…Louisiana Pancake Batfish only because I like the name much more than the other 9 and “Pancake Batfish has a rather superhero sound to it….nevertheless….what is thought to be new may not necessarily be new…and chances are…it is not…

the highlight of both of my cat’s day is a spoonful of wet food in their bowl each and every morning…outside of that…their excitement level remains pretty flat line…boring and really nothing new happens for the most part…of course with the exception of a noise that may sound new yet is passe in a matter of seconds…becomes old business and falls into the memory category…if that…and they go on about their day in complete oblivion to the new elements…species…technology…blah…blah…blah…

I am still very much amazed at new discoveries…and simple ones at that…latest…folders for my I Phone…my buddy showed me that process and I’m downloading apps just to file them away…

I awakened this morning at 4:19…thinking of everything there is to think about…I must admit at the top of my list was the concept and thinking about “New”…the entire notion that…was…the  “New World”… New… certainly New York was not the Newest version of York…and did New Math spring from the loins of…Old Math…and I get… “New Born”…vs…Old Born given there is an Old Born

New oozes the idea that change has occurred…the old version was somehow lacking while the update has a few more bells and whistles…maybe a different look but it’s still basically the same…perhaps a bit more difficult to look at from the big picture…and maybe the changes that made it easier…more user friendly…more efficient….effective…prettier…smaller…sleeker…more colorful…available…have also made the essence less of the essence…

who knows….maybe subjecting the Louisiana Pancake Batfish to just the right amount of flerovium  and livermorium might very well produce a new Louisiana Pancake Batfish species….
