Thank you so much for your kind words. Deciding how to translate all those zeros to something comprehensible was a real struggle. Being a phys/math scientist, I ultimately sided with power notation even though I was very conscious that mine was an interpretive rather than a literal reading. And I'm very grateful that the PL (Piotrek?) didn't knock me down for this liberty..... 8-) Thank you. Whew!

Well, theoretically Karol is the PLer of this project, but since he still hasn't responded to my PM, I've decided to PL the sections myself. As for the numbers, I wasn't reading along (it's not word-perfect PL) so I trust your judgement.
I'll PL the remaining sections soon.

Chapter 16 is OK except for one place:
ca. 12:55 repetition "Doszedłem do miejsca gdzie..."

Since the recent posts dissapeared in the recent server turmoil, I'm reposting PL notes for section 19.

Overall PL OK, but it could probably benefit from speeding up the intro a bit. It lasts about 45 seconds in the 16 minute section. If you use Audacity, highlight the intro and then go to Effects-> Change Tempo and there set the Percentage Change to any positive parametre; the higher, the more sped up the highlighted fragment will be.

Chapter 29 fixed and re-uploaded. I re-recorded the following bits:
5:04 Tam umysł nasz pozbywa się narzuconych formułek uważanych niemal za pewniki, korzy się przed nieznaną przyczyną wszystkiego i nabiera głębokiego przekonania że stworzony jest nie na to tylko aby badal, ale aby się dowiedział.

13:43 Figiel to bardzo stary i oklepany w świecie zwierząt, a szczegolniej w światku owadów: w nim częściej jeszcze aniżeli między ludźmi lubią wilki i lisy przywdziewać skórę baranków, a osły i gęsi pozory lwów i orłów.

20:20 Przyjęcie dopiero za fakt prawa naturalnego doboru i dziedzicznosci cech nabytych tłumaczy w przedziwnie jasny sposób istnienie tysięcznych dziwacznych kształtów zwierząt i roślin.

Thank you for pointing me to this useful trick, Piotrek!
I upped the intro by 10%; in addition, to lessen the difference between that and the rest, I upped the tempo of the rest of the recording by 3%. Total speed now is 15:31
