I am, therefore I build. LEGO was the beginning of my life of building. Each part, each element, though a whole part in itself becomes much more when part of a larger creation. It is molecular engineering made art, made fun. Each connection is more than a 3/16" round peg fitting into a hole. It is the neural connection made in the mind of the builder. From plastic I branched out into other materials. Wood, metal, stone, dirt. My own muscle fibers. My mind. Even electrons! Everything that exists can be put together to make a functioning creation. Wood can be joined, metal bolted and welded, muscles can be trained, the mind can be made more intelligent. You just have to know how it fits together. LEGO is a toy universe, and the universe is the ultimate LEGO.
