What are you talking about?

Several have asked, others have no doubt wondered, WHAT is the Universe of Synergy and what the hell does it mean? I will explain...

First, there's synergy...

syn·er·gy (sĭn'ər-jē) n., pl. -gies.
The interaction of two or more agents or forces so that their combined effect is greater than the sum of their individual effects.

In this blog, the random elements I contribute (each of which have little, if any, redeeming qualities for the good of mankind) come together and through the miracle of synergy, become fascinating because of their proximity to each other. I will prove that if you put enough randomness together, you can create order out of chaos.

So what about "Universe of Synergy"... if I just added "of science" to the end of it, it would sound like something Bill Nye would come up with. Interesting segue...

The Universe of Synergy was inspired by the name of an attraction at Epcot at Walt Disney World in Florida called the "Universe of Energy". Essentially the Universe of Energy has an "edutainment" ride called Ellen's Energy Adventure that examines the various forms of energy in use in the world, blah blah blah... whatever. What makes it cooler is that it features Ellen DeGeneres and Bill Nye, with brief appearances by Jamie Lee Curtis (she must have been on a break from pushing cell phones) and Alex Trebek. It's quite entertaining, and most importantly, it's air conditioned.

Synergy... Epcot... Universes... Ellen DeGeneres. So there you go.
