Extraordinary Chemical Knowledge Comes with Extraordinary Responsibility

A diminishingly small percentage of the population has the knowledge and understanding of how to manipulate matter at the molecular level.  Those possessing this knowledge came to it through a confluence of the gift of sufficient intellectual capacity and the good fortune of having access to some type of educational framework not of their making.  The power of chemistry is daunting and world-changing. It impacts societies, oceans, and atmospheres.

With these two gifts comes a responsibility to use the power of molecular manipulation for good and not ill. To build and not destroy. To heal and not to harm.
