The fundamental link: interactions between micro and macro worlds.
Did you realize that some natural patterns can be found both microscopically and macroscopically? If you compare some watercourses with blood or neural systems, you will probably find the same curves. The universe in front of us is connected to our body depths. A link between the infinitely small and the infinitely large.
But the comparison goes beyond. We could as well compare the faceted eyes anatomy of a fly to the alveoli of a bee hive. The microscopic anatomy of wood to a textile mesh. The microscopic structure of viruses to the architecture of some flowers. Or the composition of a seawater drop to 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.
