Navier-Stokes to the Rescue

Navier-Stokes to the Rescue – At the risk of being branded a mystic I’ll mention this spooky little synchronicity.
I’ve just been reading Dawkins’ A Devil’s Chaplain and written an article prompted by it (Stop Press – Article now on-line here). As an aero engineer I chose, in that article, to follow an aeronautical analogy, picking up on Dawkins’ references to the Navier-Stokes equations and Chaos, and to a plane-load of social anthropologists. Is The Apothecary (with an interest in CFD apparently) also currently reading Dawkins ? Or is this just a coincidence. Spookier still, the article itself uses the word “evolution” to describe the effect of applying the CFD principles to pixels involved in photographic restoration.
