The ramblings of an Eternal Student of Life
. . . still studying and learning how to live

Here’s a strange one. Is it the surface of some planet where water or some other kind of liquid (perhaps liquid methane, if far from the sun, or melted rock, if close to it) is flowing? Or is it the inside of some kind of living tissue, say a liver or a muscle? Or are these some kind of strange trees or weeds growing?

No, actually this is right from my own kitchen. I was cleaning a wok after having a nice stir-fry veggie dinner, and I sprinkled on some scrubbing powder (akin to Comet, but the supermarket generic brand) and then swished some water around. After a few minutes, these strange and interesting patterns formed on the side of the wok. Somehow, they share something of the physical processes within living tissue or the surface of a very dynamic planet (akin to earth, with its many river systems).

As Mister Spock would say — “fascinating”.

  1. Jim, I tho’t it might be skin. But then your explanation makes me think that the veggies were at one time “living tissue”; so it makes sense that cleaning them would produce living-tissue-like forms. Dont’ you think? MCS
