A swarm of jellyfish managed to shut down one of the world's largest nuclear reactors this week.

Quote

Engineers at the Oskarshamn nuclear power plant in Sweden had to take emergency action when large numbers of the gelatinous creatures clogged up the pipes responsible for providing water to cool the turbines. Workers toiled for two days to clear the blockage before the reactor could be restarted.

A multi-million dollar reactor undone by Jelly?  Now that's profound.

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."
