    Summary

    Over his 900+ years on this earth, Nicky has attended medical school many times. He has several medical degrees. He is clearly able to use his expertise and accumulated knowledge to properly evaluate what is a legitimate scientific theory and what is not.

    (Or, some times throughout history where Dr. di Genova defended prevailing medical wisdom only to eventually be, perhaps, not entirely correct.)

    Summary

    Towards the bottom of the list, a short title stood out: “GOD.” Curious, Nile skimmed the description: By drawing on sources from antiquity to the present day, from philosophy to poetry, from mysticism to neuroscience, from Eastern philosophers to their Western counterparts, this seminar explores what we talk about when we talk about God. [Thursdays, 2-5pm, Prof. Y. al-Kaysani & Prof. N. di Genova. Max. enrollment: 10 students.]

    “I’m kind of intrigued by this one here that’s just called ‘God,’” she said tentatively.

    Professor Scythia’s eyebrows shot up. “Oh? Why that one?”

    -

    OR, college senior Nile takes a very unusual seminar, made even stranger by the fact that the two professors teaching it seem to utterly despise each other.

    But then Nicky said, “Back at Merrick’s lab…” and she realized she was in for something else entirely.

     

    OR, Nile gets to know Nicky and Joe a little better.
