Which in your world would have more kudos? A non-returner or a Nobel laureate?
It is common in the world of humans, especially British humans to put a blue plaque up if a Nobel laureate even took a passing dump in the building.
“Alan Turing once shat here of a wet Sunday afternoon. We have saved a partial turd in this most precious of vials.”
It would be really difficult in science terms to say, the bodhisattva Alan Taylor deeply loved our students and he expressed his great compassion within these walls. He gave of his heart to them one and all.
Yeah, kudos is a bit shite, service is love in action.
Which does humanity value most?
