Cellular Traffic

I’d like to show you how busy your cell all the time although during your nap time.

Like tractor-trailers on a highway, small sacs called vesicles transport substances within cells. This image tracks the motion of vesicles in a living cell. The short red and yellow marks offer information on vesicle movement. The lines spanning the image show overall traffic trends. Typically, the sacs flow from the lower right (blue) to the upper left (red) corner of the picture. Such maps help researchers follow different kinds of cellular processes as they unfold. Courtesy of postdoctoral fellow Alexey Sharonov and chemist Robin Hochstrasser, both at the University of Pennsylvania, who also collaborate in a cellular imaging project supported by the NIH Roadmap for Medical Research.

And, here is the words I like the most

… It may look like I’m doing nothing, but on a cellular level I’m very busy. [AsapSCIENCE]

Puzzle of Life

“You are part of a puzzle in someones life. You may never know where you fit. But, someones life may never be complete without you in it.”
[anonym]

Interesting words. But, I will extend the term ‘someone’ to ‘people’ in order to get the general effect.

People interacts and influences one another. Nobody can live alone. No matter what kind of interaction you have, you always act as a piece of puzzle. Sometimes those consists of hundred pieces and another time you fit only with one piece to make a complete square with certain picture.

So, we must know our pattern to be fit with others. Your pattern describe who you are and the picture is your life.

What Time Can’t Solve?

“As time goes on, you’ll understand.  What lasts, lasts; what doesn’t, doesn’t.  Time solves most things.  And what time can’t solve, you have to solve yourself.”  (Haruki Murakami)

Nakata and Mimi, Kafka on the shore.

Apa sih yang tidak bisa dilakukan oleh waktu? Bahkan kematian pun menunggu waktu. Ternyata ada yang tidak bisa diatasi oleh waktu, yaitu ketidaksabaran.  Terburu-buru itu katanya sudah tabiat manusia.  Tapi sungguh, waktu pun menyerah untuk yang satu ini.  Maka, bersabarlah 🙂
