Not so much in the evolutionary sense, but in the familial sense. After all, if your cousin is simply the offspring of your parent's sibling, why not continue that logic back a few hundred millennia or so?</p> <blockquote><p>To make a rough estimate of the cousin and removal relationship between you and any other living thing, all one needs to do is count up the generations back to the common ancestor. This sounds easy in theory but is complicated in practice. First, make an estimate of the number of generations along the human line back to the common ancestor. Second, calculate the number of generations along the non-human branch back in time to a common ancestor with humans.</p></blockquote> <p>Evolutionary biologists and other nerds can argue the details of Eisenberg's number crunching <a href="http://www.evogeneao.com/evo-gene.html">here</a>, as he's mindful of the flaws and has posted his raw data to encourage discussion.

She's already sussed out fourteen such hidden wunderkammern and <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/astropop/sets/72157617961489047/">photographed their treasures</a>, but she wants to find more:</p> <blockquote><p>"Who are these private collectors, and what sort of treasures do they possess? How might their methods of displaying collections differ from institutional approaches? Are we reaching a historical moment similar to the pre-museum era of private cabinets, in which the most interesting artifacts are now in private rather than public hands?"</p></blockquote> <p>It's a really interesting question. Wunderkammern were not originally institutional - these cabinets were in private hands, and their organizational philosophies emerged from the idiosyncratic worldviews of their owners and/or curators. Today, such collections could easily die with their owners - broken up and auctioned off, or simply thrown out as rubbish. The beauty and value of taxidermic specimens, vintage gas masks, bottled fetuses and prosthetic limbs are not readily apparent to everyone! And it's unlikely that a steampunk version of Antiques Roadshow would have a large American audience (alas). So if you own or know of a collection that fits the bill, please <a href="http://morbidanatomy.blogspot.com">contact Joanna</a>, so she can document it for the public and posterity. (Owners can remain anonymous if they choose.) </p> </div> <span><a title="View user profile." href="/author/bioephemera" lang="" about="/author/bioephemera" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">bioephemera</a></span> <span>Thu, 06/18/2009 -
