Who was it that said  (a poor paraphrase) that any sufficiently advanced
technology would appear as magic to the uninitiated?

Subject: Russ Allison/art vs science

I put my vote with Russ Allison on science versus art in the world of
histotechnology, also his liking of both areas.  I still prefer to 
scientifically analyze what is happening, going wrong, how to change,
whys, wherefores and how to's mechanically, skillfully and chemically 
of histotechnology. 

Histotechnology is my science, and my art is at home (acrylics, watercolors,

brushes, paper and art books).  I view and do them as separate entities.

Long ago, I found the comment that what I did in histo was "magic". PSHAW!
This offended me, as there is nothing magic about what I do or did,  
unless I could wave a magic wand and make the commentator turn into a 
huge slimy green toad and disappear!    

Scientifically yours,
Gayle Callis
