Meitei starts in again. "The speaker is most honored to learn that, against all expectation, a new listener of the fairer sex has chosen to join in the back. As an unanticipated delight, a fluid and charming voice has injected a bit of luster into an otherwise drab lecture. I would hope to retain the lady's favor by continuing in a non-technical vein, but I'm afraid I must touch on the subject of mechanics. This will necessarily challenge a lady listener, so I ask in advance for forbearance." Kangetsu, at the mention of mechanics, is beaming again. "What I'll now substantiate is that this nose and face are mutually incompatible. I shall demonstrate, through rigorous application of mechanical principles, that they stand in violation of Zeising's golden ratio. First, let H denote the nose's height. α is the angle formed by the intersection of the plane of the face with the nose. And please recognize W, of course, as the nose's weight. Are you following so far? ..." "Who could follow that?" the master objects. "What do you say, Kangetsu?" "I'm afraid you've lost me too." "Oh my. That's not good. I though I might lose Kushami, but never a bachelor of science. These formulas are pivotal to my thesis. Without them all is for naught -- Ah well, I guess it can't be helped. I'll skip the formulas and jump to my conclusion." "You've drawn a conclusion?" the master interjects with a questioning look. "Of course I have a conclusion. A talk without a conclusion is like Western cuisine sans dessert. -- Now pay attention, gentlemen, here it comes. -- Given the preceding formulae, and in light of the theories of Virchow and Weismann, one must absolutely acknowledge the hereditary nature of innate physical traits. One must also accept, despite the prevailing argument for acquired traits independent of heredity, that mental condition, to some extent, is also tied to said physical traits. I follows then, that the progeny of one possessing so ill suited a nose be likewise fated to nasal aberration."
