Artist at play. Admire the talent, but don't become part of the artwork.

My discovery is not a game. Maybe my discovery, le says at the seed, which is going to be: its taste, its smell, its color, its fruit, your cell type.

Cheap glass has a green-tint, (the lower bit) ...

The thicker the [cheap magnifying] glass is, the greener it looks.

The green colour in plants is due to chloroplasts ... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chloroplasts

My magnifying glass is transparent. And it turns green when I put it on the ice.

And where are the chloroplasts? It will be what you see under the magnifying glass, when we passed it on the ice.

To really visualize chloroplasts, you would need a fairly powerful microscope.  I'm seeing notes that they are 4μ to 10μ in diameter, and 1μ to 3μ thick...  which is awfully small.  An amoeba, for comparison, is about 100 times as large.

And where is the chloroplast? In a light.
