Great! Here's section 16 (28:18):

PL OK, and we're at the half-way mark!

Nice to hear about the foramen ovalae and ductus arteriosus -- truly and amazing bit of engineering, and the transition at birth remarkable. (Occasionally it doesn't and we need some surgery, of course}

Paley certainly has a breadth of knowledge.

And here's section 18, the shortest in this project (10:13):

There's certain poetry in Paley's juxtaposing diurnal comforts with the physics of the universe.

21,22,23 are all PL OK!

Sorry for the delay.
Just couldn't get to the internet as often as I had anticipated during the last week of vacation in the mountains.
