ha. was looking up Steve Job's w/ NeXt software's run.. 
how a french ? connection regards to DNA off the books and wet labs to computers/pc's.. etc..

basically I found this:

Real-world modeling and relationships[edit]

OOP can be used to associate real-world objects and processes with digital counterparts. However, not everyone agrees that OOP facilitates direct real-world mapping (see Negative Criticismsection) or that real-world mapping is even a worthy goal; Bertrand Meyer argues in Object-Oriented Software Construction[28] that a program is not a model of the world but a model of some part of the world; "Reality is a cousin twice removed". At the same time, some principal limitations of OOP had been noted.[29] For example, the Circle-ellipse problem is difficult to handle using OOP's concept of inheritance.

However, Niklaus Wirth (who popularized the adage now known as Wirth's law: "Software is getting slower more rapidly than hardware becomes faster") said of OOP in his paper, "Good Ideas through the Looking Glass", "This paradigm closely reflects the structure of systems 'in the real world', and it is therefore well suited to model complex systems with complex behaviours" (contrast KISS principle).

Steve Yegge and others noted that natural languages lack the OOP approach of strictly prioritizing things (objects/nouns) before actions (methods/verbs).[30] This problem may cause OOP to suffer more convoluted solutions than procedural programming.[31]

facination indeed
