MONEY

MONEY (Rap Rhythm)

Money

I made a lot of money, spent a lot of dough,
Didn’t save a dime, now I’m feeling low.
Thought I really needed, everytime I spent,
Now I have no money, can’t even pay the
rent.

My parents always told me to make a lot of
dough,
But no one ever taught me to use some self
control.
I spent a lot of money, had a really good time.
Now my money friends are gone, not a very
good sign.

So if you’re going to work and make a lot of
dough,
Spend some of the money but learn some self
control.
It’s not how much you make, how much you really
spend,
It’s how much you save that matters in the end.

THE END OF THE RAINBOW

THE END OF THE RAINBOW

At the end of the rainbow,
Just sitting on the gold,
Was himself, the Leprechaun,
Who was looking mighty old.

He was incredibly short,
And his belly was round.
His mouth hung open
And didn’t make a sound.

He leaped up onto the rainbow
And glared into my eye.
Then, he said I had caught him
And sadly began to cry.

“If you wish upon the rainbow,
I’ll grant it, you’ll see,
But please leave me my gold
Because that is my fee.”

I closed my eyes,
Held the rainbow tight
And sought for a wish
To come into the light.

As I held the rainbow,
A thought came to me.
I made a wish
Of what I’d like to be.

I opened my eyes
And what did I see:
No rainbow, no Leprechaun
And no pot of gold for me.

As the years have passed,
I’ve worked and now become
Exactly what I wished for,
By that rainbow under the sun.

Future of DNA

I covered in the book, DNA and how we are along with all life forms on the planet earth from carbon DNA and are all basically from the last universal common ancestor (LUCA).
Since we live in a fast developing technical society, new developments occur constantly. No, we have not yet found another common DNA to change this development.

Recently, new developments in technology are talking about a synthetic DNA; this could lead to the development of new life forms from what could be called XNA or even XDNA. This would start a whole new source of artificial or synthetic life forms, yet they would be based on synthesis and not evolution as we presently know it. Our new millennials (This thousand years) will probably develop it, and they would do all kinds of creations I certainly would not recognize.

They would not be called robots or cyborgs necessarily, but they would be something or a life form either mixed or developed with XNA synthesis. This would create the question of the soul–do they have one or not. I’ll never know or even be around to see this, yet it is bound to happen, and our millennial descendents of this thousand years will have to deal with it. If it happens, I still would believe in LUCA rather than a synthetic life form with or without a soul. (A thought for the future by the millennials or descendents of our humanity as it stands today).

Whatever happens in the future, the question always remains “You either believe or you don’t believe. That is always the question.
