I thought that for a change I should introduce the cat boys to some chemistry, tell them about those molecules and ions and reactions that occur everywhere. So I started sharing a bit on equilibria and the energetics thereof, the most fundamental of fundamentals, the everyday processes taking place in our bodies!
I explained that simply stated equlibria referred to differences in energy between the ground states joined by an activation barrier, and that there were rates associated with these equilibria. Not bad, is it?
I looked at Ollie and noticed the Vulcan ears, which means that he has no idea what I am saying
or perhaps he is trying to listen to Gussy who was sitting behind him hoping he would say something. August though was absorbed in his own world and was having a good time when
Ollie who could no longer take it walked over to him and whispermeowed in his ear...must be something naughty I am sure!
I felt this was a good intro for the cat boys; however, they craved their reflective readings and so we read:
"...From the fellowship and commingling of the elemental atoms life results. In their harmony and blending there is ever newness of existence. It is radiance, completeness; it is consummation; it is life itself. Just now the physical energies and natural forces which come under our immediate observation are all at peace. The sun is at peace with the earth upon which it shines. The soft breathing winds are at peace with the trees. All the elements are in harmony and equilibrium. A slight disturbance and discord among them might bring another San Francisco earthquake and fire. A physical clash, a little quarreling among the elements as it were, and a violent cataclysm of nature results. This happens in the mineral kingdom. Consider, then, the effect of discord and conflict in the kingdom of man, so superior to the realm of inanimate existence. How great the attendant catastrophe, ..." (promulgation of universal peace)
Boys prayed for elemental and fundamental harmony, love and peace, and sent off pawfuls of kitty kisses!
