Professor is the child of Helen Sr. and some Japanese dude. This one pregnancy was enough for Helen Sr. and she decided to clone herself to have children to study the [[ScienceRelatedMemeticDisorder genetic causes of mad science]] on. In the future, Professor will go mad, remove the restraining bolt/key from her gynoid Nano, give her deadly weapons, a will to fight, recruit [[SteinsGate Okabe Rintarou and his Future Gadget Lab (he surely wouldn't resist the chance to work with a real mad scientist and become her apprentice. Kuris-tina would become their agent and sexy female minion of Okabe. EVERY mad scientist needs a sexy minion. Professor's will be Nano, after a few upgrades)]] and take over Japan.

[[WMG: Hakase is not yet the master of robotics she presents herself as, but a prodigy student.]]
As several have already guessed, she isn't actually Nano's creator, as evidenced by the fact that Nano is a RidiculouslyHumanRobot while the newer Biscuits are much more primitive. Nano was created by Hakase's teacher to act as both caretaker and study subject; the modifications Hakase does on her are literally homework.


* The same play on words occurs in ''MahouSenseiNegima'' with the character Hakase Satomi (葉加瀬 聡美), who ''also'' is an expert in robotics. Coincidence?

The soap bubble scene is great. Yuuko has said several times that Mai-chan "must be favored by the gods", and in a fair number of scenes she exhibits a power I would call "superconductivity" that is characteristic of enlightened people. That is to say, there is no friction or wavering in her actions --- she does what she does without any sense of anxiety or misgivings. She catches the flying piece of wood without looking and begins carving it immediately, she wins the stair game with the resurrection mantra, etc. That scene is a similar sort of occurrence. Grabbing a soap bubble like that has a 99% chance of popping it before you could grab it, let alone move it into your mouth. An action such as eating a soap bubble is a spur-of-the-moment kind of idea, and Mai-chan is a spontaneous creature who goes with the flow. You could say that it was possible for her to do such an incredible feat because there was no doubt or trembling in her hands. The fact that the soap was bitter to her afterwards is funny. Of course soap would be bitter, anyone knows that. She wasn't thinking about that though, she was just flowing with the universe, which is at heart a playful phenomenon. It reminds me of the zen character Unsui who suddenly felt the urge to growl at a tiger carpet (one with the head still on) and a female monk came into the room and saw this occur. He was immediately embarrassed and said for her to tell no one about it.

[[WMG: Nichijou is an allegory for Zen Buddhism.]]

From various internet comments:

Some of the sketches are akin to Buddhist koans, in that they present a deeper truth in an extremely compact, seemingly non-sensical form. Others are jokes about Buddhist concepts, and others are anime in-jokes. Many of the jokes, for those who get it, are about how un-Buddhist-like the characters are, and how they just donít get it. Every character is, in this prism, ignorant. Later in the series they subtly make fun of how the viewers donít get it either.

For example, thereís a sketch where the Mohawk-guy goes to denounce the Buddhist monk for believing in demons. He pretends to be ill, so the monk gives him a box with medicine; Mohawk-guy was expecting an exorcism, and light-hearted exaggerated reactions ensue. The in-joke is that almost all Buddhist monks donít believe in demons, and that Mohawk-guy, who is presented as an aspiring scientist with an interest to disprove religion, doesnít understand science or Buddhism.

In one scene, Mai plays the Zen Master who is trying to get her student to become her most natural and spontaneous self by "shocking" her into it, which she eventually does, and even SHE, the ZEN MASTER is startled. You see, it takes another Zen master to startle a Zen master. When two beings are both liberated into spontaneity and are friends, then life gets real groovy and fun. As I think Mark Twain put it, "The loss of a teddy bear to a child is as great as the loss of a kingdom to its king." In other words, the psychological weight and significance of Yukko's desire to live a normal life was just as intense as a king losing his country. She in all earnest really had to resist with her utmost being. And finally it is revealed that living life that way, constantly conforming to the social norms and cultural programming around you, isn't as fun as being your most true, natural self.

** In the scene were they try to trick Nano into proving she's a robot, Mio and Yuuko hold up signs after what they think will be evidence turns out to be nothing. After the scene turns back to normal the second time, Mio tells Mai and Yuuko to knock it off. Yuuko is still holding the sign.
** We see Misato's room a few times, and she has her huge weapons just lying in the background in what would be otherwise perfectly normal scenes.
