Needless splits, or does that need saying? We have quite a polymathic group here. Many persons other than Nadia and Natasha, including myself, have posted on art topics, and Nadia and Natasha have posted on technical topics.
Pigeonholing seems a needless remnant of the prior economic need to specialize, whereas now and in the future an interdisciplinary approach will produce the ideas and products that carry humanity forward.
