I hope everyone realizes that I am very happy with off-topics, and love the praying mantis thing. It didn’t come off as cynical, did it? I just thought it funny to post to the crystallography list, and somewhat humorous to picture praying mantises running COOT etc.
We should really find an organism which sees in reciprocal space, figure out how it solves the phase problem, then implement it in software. Or train ourselves to do it by wearing Fourier glasses—then we could just do all of our modelling in reciprocal space, save a lot of time.
