Some wonderful properties have been discovered in the eye of a small and poisonous jellyfish, and you want “the straight version,”:http://pharyngula.org/index/weblog/comments/jellyfish_eyes/ PZ Myers has it.
But what struck me first was a description of the jellyfish from the lead researcher, in the _New Scientist:_ %(loony)”These are fantastic creatures with 24 eyes, four parallel brains and 60 arseholes”%
It seemed to me that we were here on the brink of a much greater discovery. there are so many things that fit that description —
* yahoo groups;
* successful open source projects (the failures have fewer brains).
is this a golden ratio, which will be replicated across all social structures?
Further example welcome.
