[Taxacom] The word botany

Hi:

still trying to have some convincing evidence of the link through thanatos...

anyways...

on other hand, a while ago I had some similar issue with the word
Herma, used for reef-building corals, and in the end a Greek colleague
of my former professor had to go search in some ancient greek text.

but then again...

still have no evidence for the thanatos part. :-)

cheers

sergio

"Si nos portamos bien, está prometido, veremos las mismas imágenes y
escucharemos los mismos sonidos, y vestiremos las mismas ropas, y
comeremos la misma chatarra, y estaremos solos de la misma soledad,
dentro de casas iguales en barrios iguales de ciudades iguales donde
respiraremos la misma basura y serviremos a nuestros automóviles con
la misma devoción, y responderemos a las ordenes de las mismas
máquinas en un mundo que será maravilloso para todo lo que no tenga
piernas ni patas ni alas ni raíces"
