Harnessing: a practice that long ago unleashed runaway troubles

Magnetic yeast! Wondrous. What modern scientific magic will researchers brew next?

Humans have long practiced harnessing -- worldly, practical sorcery ("sourcery") -- but without expertise or wisdom all too often. Domesticating plants and animals distanced human nature from nature over prehistoric and historic ages, and (intended and unintended) complexities, complications and consequences stirred up, confusing and confounding life, generation after generation.

But in this day and age hmankind could grow wisdom and understanding to complement the magic wrought with knowledge and technology. So I hope, imagine and dream.

Humans and yeasts played re-creatively in spirit in the beginning, I recall.

New 'magnetic yeast' marks step toward harnessing Nature's magnetic capabilities
