Using the turn in conversation for some (relevant) self promotion...  


Speaking of relationships, a biochemist friend once confided her belief that love is all about negotiating the terms of control. How much is one willing to concede? How much can one insist on maintaining?...

This perspective on intimacy didn’t feel right at the time but stuck with me. As the years pass, I grow more convinced in her assessment. In today’s genomic and big data world the importance of control issues within intimacy, intra and inter species, are no longer ignorable.

Reading this thread made me connect the control conversation from years ago to my recently completed collaboration. So, thank you!

I watched the GERMEX game yesterday knowing that I am I tiny bit Mexican too. Does it make a difference? Or is my love connection to Mexico more relevant? Or is there a love connection because of my genetic network?
