The big nuclear chimney is a modern version of the old alchemist pan.  For the alchemists, transformation of matter, in a nuclear level, was a dream. For us this is a daily event. The problem is to know if what we can do nowadays, in scientific terms,  is better of not for us, who are a mix of scientific minds,  old dreams, natural bodies and many other physical and not physical things and processes.

Above one can see an upset pollard willow tree,  being pressed by a `nuclear dream’ .
