Humans care much about organizing things into patterns, nature on the other hand doesn’t seem to care much.

    …but if you take a closer look at a single rose, you will find lots of beautiful structures and patterns!

    your thoughts on this remind me of a great indie movie called 'pi' (the math symbol), about a man that starts to see patterns everywhere in nature, and then in human behaviour. i think you'd like it, especially if you're a fan of independent movies!

    indeed. and nature's patterns are too complex to even describe or get a hold of. if you are interested in that matter, i strongly recommend and amazing book i read some time ago:

    true, human tries to simplify the complexity of nature/world through organizing things into patterns.
    But, I think the random looking of nature dones't really mean that nature doesn't care about pattern. Nature has no need to organize things because it has already been a series of patterns. But, some humans take advantage of these pattern to exploit the nature.

    Brilliant! Love to see the difference, I both adore man-made and nature works. Got my eye on your blog now.

    Oh there are patterns in nature! Patterns in the animal, plant and mineral kingdoms. That's why we are attracted to re-creating some of our own patterns in our art and design work and a myriad other ways. Did you know Frank Lloyd Wright was very conscious of this when he designed Falling Water and his other buildings? His design is based on fractals and they are everywhere in nature. That's probably why Falling Water is so popular. We are naturally attracted to it. Homeopathy also sees that we embody patterns already existing in nature albeit psychologically. Love your blog!

      i never said there are no patterns in nature, i meant that humans are consciously making patterns which is something that "just" happens in nature. 🙂 glad you like my blog, thanks for your thoughts!
