xong, it broke my heart to find out about your brother! He was the single most extraordinary intellect I have encountered on the web and definitely in the top handful encountered in my personal life. Even after a life spent as a biologist he broadened my understanding of many different related fields far beyond what I could have achieved on my own.
Years ago he invited me to share some of my photography with him privately and I did. Over the years he pointed out details and offered insights that I had missed.
His courage facing his cancer was an inspiration to me facing my own.
I grieve his loss and celebrate the triumph of his life. My thoughts are with you!
I miss him!

If evolution is shown to be false, it will be at the hands of things that are true, not made up. --percy
The reason that we have the scientific method is because common sense isn't reliable. -- Taq
