The geology of spirit.

Just for the heck of it, I re-scanned Boris's image at 300 dpi with certain enhancements, to see how it would appear here. (Sorry it's a little crooked.) Of course it depends on the resolution of one's computer screen, but keep in mind that this is a 3x5 card. Click on the image below to see closer details. Most of us will be able to then click again on the image to enlarge it even more. My computer has refined resolution, so I don't know how many can see the "geology" of the image, which appear (to me)  as complex ridges, whorls, miniature streams and valleys created by the precipitation of molecules of pigment. The biologist's loupe I use reveals much more nature.
