### Re: What are the religious veiws on cloning?

### I want to be in Game Design

I don't care what, Coding and Scripting and all that is presently very arcane to me, but I love math so it shouldn't be too hard to surmount. Ideally I'd do concept art. Concept art is my dream job. Shaping what a game will finally look like. That is what I would love to do. With the way digital art...

I think you need to alter some of the constraints to put a little more angle between the asymptotes to make the features more distinct. After you did that transform, if I'm right, it would be a closed curve with two self intersections, with the angles made by the tangents at those points of interse...

I'd try not to think of love as a point that can be found, but rather a relation between points. For example, I'm much of the opinion that 1 is in love with itself, because it always looks out for itself, and it's the multiplicative identity, so take that for what it's worth.
