    Martin mistook persistence for progress, endurance for enlightenment and luck for scientific method. That he was correct for the wrong reasons was wholly lost upon him.

    Thankfully, Jean was pragmatic about the discovery. It was she who applied the rigorous testing to Martin’s quantum snapshot phenotype technique. All of the DNA in the Botanical Genome Database was remapped to sequences of digits which corresponded to strict, repeating positions in the decimal representation of pi.

    Martin’s Folly, as Jean thought of the flawed equation, proved the existence of shared human consciousness. She realized that his attempt to identify an unknown blossom from fragments of a bud signaled the rebirth of the moribund field of forensic numerology. With just a few input parameters, the equation could spit out an exact sequence of numbers.

    In defiance of current statutory penalties for tampering with interstate gambling enterprises, Jean bought a lottery ticket that had a 97.67% chance of winning.

    Pragmatic, indeed.
