Rare genetic mutations have been known to abolish pain, or to cause permanent agony. But what if subtle differences in genes mean that everyone has a different pain threshold that is hard-wired into their genetics?

“Oppenheimer, they tell me you are writing ptoery. I do not see how a man can work on the frontiers of physics and write a ptoery at the same time. They are in opposition. In science you want to say something that nobody knew before, in words which everyone can understand. In ptoery you are bound to say something that everybody knows already in words that nobody can understand.”
