The Foundational Connection: Interactions Between Micro and Macro Worlds.

Have you ever realized that certain natural patterns can be found both at microscopic and macroscopic scales? If you were to compare some watercourses with blood vessels or neural systems, you would likely discern similar curves. The universe before us is intricately linked to the depths of our bodies—a connection bridging the infinitely small and the infinitely large.

However, this comparison extends further. We can draw parallels between the faceted eyes of a fly and the alveoli of a beehive. The microscopic anatomy of wood can resemble a textile mesh. The intricate structure of viruses mirrors the architectural complexity of certain flowers. Even the composition of a droplet of seawater finds resonance in the expanse of a starry sky.

"In Nature everything is connected, interwoven, subject to natural law. We cannot separate ourselves from that, no matter how hard we try.” 

Jeffrey R. Anderson,  2012.
