      Oker and all; do you think we will see a progressive development of assembler kinds and types, like some limited to silicate and others to fullerene and polymers and diamondoids, as opposed to a general purpose make all box?

      " . . . the originators of new ideas are too protective of their 
      brainchildren to develop them properly; creativity impliies a 
      corresponding lack of perspective." - Paul Dirac
      
      Going from one mathematical science development after another 
      reveals a lot of different slants and takes on this; for instance, 
      Archimede's integral and differential calculus was hampered by his 
      use of geometric algebra and arithmetic; while some like Frederick 
      Gauss argued and wondered why and how come Archemedes didn't think 
      to make the hindu/arabic numerals; well, I'd argue that Archemedes 
      certainly developed his ideas 'improperly', but considering lifes 
      pressures and that he could(obviously) see how to get the results he 
      wanted without travelling all over the world . . . stumbling on 
      India's invention of zero . . . hanging out with the arabs to see 
      them symbolize algebra and arithmetic(really this didn't happen till 
      Vieta anyways!) . . .and all this while managing to live for a 
      thousand years or more; well, I think you get the point.
      
      Newton's invention of the Calculus is actually a good example of 
      what Mr Dirac had in mind; Galileo had the idea of average speed, 
      Fermat had done the tangent to the line thing, and his initial 
      teacher and as teacher to Isaac Newton as he could be Barrow had 
      much of the various calculus theorems like the derivative of the 
      sum, multiplication and so on; but, Barrow could not see how to put 
      it all together; even here, Newton actually could not see how to do 
      all of the basic calculus students learn today; he did not know 
      rolle's theorem and the proving of all the basic derivative 
      formula's by means of limits that Cauchy did in the eighteen 
      hundreds.
      
      What to make of it all? Just goes to show you that you can never 
      confine mankind in a finite box and expect to learn the universe
      (kind of a necessity for us humans I would say!

        Dear Sirs,
        One Mr.Ganapathy has proved that he can measure atmosphere change in the world and detect vibrations created by  the planets.
        The cancer is due to the radiation in the atmosphere. Example Hiroshima, Nagasaki in Japan.
         
        If a team of specialists sit together and discuss this we can make an equipment based on the theory, for detecting cancer
         
        If there is a sponsor, we can do that.
