Roadside Mystic

A Robins eye view...
As light enters the eye, it hits a protein called the cryptochrome, which surrounds the retina. Electrons in this protein are entangled, but light causes one part of an electron pair to get knocked out. The freed electron starts to wobble in reaction to Earth's magnetic field, but its still entangled brother also experiences these same movements and the magnetic pull from the rest of the molecule. The difference in how these two electrons move - because the free electron is no longer affected by the magnetic pull of the cryptochrome - creates patterns in the retina that the robin's brain can then interpret and use for navigation.
a) Quantum entanglement happens when the quantum status of two particles is intertwined, like two cats in a sack.
It's all moving ...all of the time folks....
and on a lark,  some recent japanese scientists were
testing various materials for superconductivity, they found that the ones soaked in commercial booze came out ahead.Shochu jacked up conductivity by 23 percent and red wine managed to supercharge over 62 percent of the material. The scientists were pleased, if bemused with their results.

Moving on to the flora , some insight into the Nymphaea caerulea - Blue Lily / Blue Lotus
Nymphaea caerulea has light blue flowers. Other similar varieties have purple, pink, or white flowers.  There is much mis-information regarding this species of plant, as well as the Nelumbo nucifera plant.  There's a great article called Blue Lily / Blue Lotus Flowers at Shaman's Garden, which makes it vividly clear which plant is which.  In short, the reason for the confusion, is that India doesn't have ANY of the plants that are generally accepted as being called "lotus" flowers; they have Nymphaea caerula, which is the "Sacred BLue Lily of the Nile" made famous in Egyptian culture, but they refer to it as "Blue Lotus", confusing spiritual explorers the world over.
• Nelumbo nucifera - Blue Lotus
• Nymphaea caerulea - Blue Lily (Sacred Blue Lily of the Nile)
• Nymphaea ampla - Mesoamerican White Lily (similar psychoactivity)
• Nymphaea rubra - Red Lotus
Represented in ancient Egyptian art. The Sacred Blue Lily of the Nile (Many mistakenly call it Blue Lotus becuase that is how it is referred to in India) was found scattered over Tutankhamen’s body when the Pharaoh’s tomb was opened in 1922. Many historians thought it was a purely symbolic flower, but there is mounting evidence that strongly points to ancient Egyptians using it to induce an ecstatic state, stimulation, and/or hallucinations, as well as being widely used as a general remedy against illness.  To this day is used as a tonic for good health, consumed as an extract, 6-12 drops or up to 1 tsp to 1 Tbs in juice or, more typically; wine, taken 1 to 3 times daily.

And finally some "Fibonacci Numbers in Nature"
