And stagnant demand in a country's economy,
A small carnivorous bog plant,
With hinged leaves that spring shut on,
And digest insects which land on them,

A person who runs an inn,
The faculty of reasoning and understanding objectively,
The process of transferring information to or from memory,
In which every memory location can be accessed directly,
Rather than being accessed in a fixed sequence,
In a satisfactory, sound, or normal state of condition,
A set of elements with two binary operations,
Addition and multiplication,
The second being distributive over the first and associative,
Erase a mark from a surface,
A piece of work,
By a craftsman accepted as qualification for membership of a, Guild,
As an acknowledged master,
The killing of someone,
Suffering from an incurable and painful disease.

John Nash




214.    Not clearly recalled or formulated in the mind,

Lie side by side,
Upon the same surface,

Meets the visions first,
And not only stands out,
But also seems far nearer,

Optimal strategy,
Where no one has,
Anything to gain by changing only his own strategy,
Named after John Nash,
As Ian Stewart put it ;
Sometimes,
Rational decisions aren't sensible.

Crick, Watson and Anaxagoras


 



245.    Not mortal,
Each of the three persons of the Trinity,
The fact is more worthy of observation that,
The accumulation of fluid or blood,
In parts of the body or organs,
As occurs in cases of poor circulation or,
After death,
The total energy of the system stays the same,
There is no input or output of energy,
Just transferrence within,
The fluid said to flow like blood,
In the veins of the gods,
Give birth,
Sires, brothers, sons, in one,
All kindred blood,
Brides, mothers, wives, in one,
An expression of surprise,
A hypothesis that the seeds of life are,
Prevalent throughout the Universe,
And furthermore that life on Earth began by such seeds,
Landing on Earth and propagating,
Of relating to, or accompanied by,
A well-known atheist,
Professor Francis Harry Compton Crick,
Who,
With James D. Watson,
Proposed a spiral model,
The double helix,
For the molecular structure of DNA,
More than one,
It was he,
Who,
Brought philosophy and the spirit of scientific inquiry,
From Ionia to Athens,
Exactly the same,
Anaxagoras.

Albert Einstein





230.    Universe,
Seen as well-ordered whole,
Falls pointless,
And immediately loses all its fire.

Who is studying or has expert knowledge of,
One or more of the natural or physical sciences,
A genius,
From the name of the,
German-born physicist,
Albert Einstein,
Spirited,
The concepts of time,
And three dimensional space,
Regarded as fused in,
Four dimensional continuum,
Not specialized or limited,
The absence of standarts of absolute and,
Universal application,
Tightly together,
Considered,
All observers to be equivalent,
Not only those moving at a uniform speed,
Gravity is no longer,
A force,
But,
Is a consequence of the curvature of,
Space-time.

Paul Adrien Maurice Dirac





249.    Come or go together,
An outstanding feature,
Or quality,
A mobile concentration of energy,
In a crystal formed by,
An excited electron,
And an associated hole ;

There is an associated antiparticle,
With the same mass and spin,
But,
Opposite electromagnetic,
Weak,
And strong charges,
Not strictly necessary,
But,
In case another component fails,
To spring or bounce back after hitting or colliding something,
Thereafter,
Matter consisting elementary particles,
Which are antiparticles of those,
Making up normal matter,
Going from one place to another without changing direction or stopping,
In a natural way for the nature of particle and the,
Existence of antiparticles,
Take or hold,
A physicist who specialized in nuclear physics,
Paul Adrien Maurice Dirac,
An ancient Egyptian gem in the form of scarab.

From the plural,
Into the singular,
Is the stage of sleep,
During the most vivid dreams occur,

Between two charges,
Is directly proportional to the,
Magnitude of the charges,
And inversely proportional to the,
Distances between charges,
Of or connected with the eyes or vision,
Covering the head,
To take the converse case,
In science,
One tries to tell people,
In such a way as to be understood by everyone,
Something that,
No one ever knew before,
But,
In poetry,
Its the exact opposite,
To or at more advanced point or stage,
Smot hym on the hede with a nege tool,
Having a climbing habit,
The supposed communication of thoughts,
Or ideas,
By means other than the known senses,
The explanation of phenomena,
By the purpose they serve,
Rather than,
By postulated causes.
