Untangling Rosalind Franklin’s Role in DNA Discovery

So interesting how “The Law of Cause and Effect” plays out. In this case it involves a scientist whose contribution to the discovery of DNA was diminished for years. Why? Looks to me like “old boy’s club” crap, but it’s not completely clear! Plus, we don’t know enough about her to discern what other factors might have been involved.

But according to this article there have always been people who knew she deserved more recognition. So double, Why so long??

The “time factor” at play here is often what throws us off about whether it is true that “What Goes Around Comes Around,” or rather that it just constitutes meaningless words, ok to be ignored! Moreover it is a conundrum that applies to both sides of the equation, ie:

  • Why does it seem to take so long for bad actors to get caught?
  • In this case, why has it taken so long for this person’s brilliant contribution to be recognized? 

What we can be sure of, is that at some point in time we will have the “breakthrough” to that understanding, that will make us feel foolish that we’d missed something so obvious! 🙂

“I’ve read a number of books that focus on sharing a similar message, including “The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne, “The Answer” by John Assaraf & Murray Smith, “The Celestine Prophecy” by James Redfield, “Think and Grow Rich,” by Napoleon Hill, and I must say that I find Rob’s to be my favorite. – Sheryl Woodhouse, founder of Livelihood Matters LLC

…And here is a genuine story about how even minimal effort to bring comfort to another human can result in outsized and wonderful results. How different the world might seem to many if that kind of true effort actually ran wild! It is a thought worth considering. It is also a siren call to each of us!

New research shows small gestures matter even more than we may think.

I wonder about when this train actually went off the rail and Balwani and Holmes both knew it. It reminds me somewhat of Bernie Madoff’s $20 Billion deception in that if Bernie had fessed up when his performance first went south and he tried to cover it up, only to make it worse, he might largely have been forgiven and returned to his original trading business. But he just couldn’t do that and as time went on…well we know the result.

Was there a similar trajectory for this pair? A time when they looked at each other and said, “Uh oh!” Not that it matters really. Somewhere along the way they knew what was going down and kept it going for as long as they could. Now have to face the music as eventually, always is the case. It is simply “The Law of Cause and Effect” unfolding. Hopefully for them there will be less tragic endings than Bernie. It depends on how they handle what they have wrought! We’ll see.
