On the patterns of nature through the context of creation and evolution. " In essence for something to come into existence here on planet earth, patterns are utilized to design and create a form that has planned success. These forms don’t squander energy rather produce them in their own way. Tinkering through the ages, ofter referred to as evolution,streamlines these forms as fluctuations in a given environment are met by moves and countermoves."

"Moves and counter moves" like how fungi help ecosystems respond to stimuli. I love patterns. My favorite is the hexagon because so much can be done with it. As one builds a hexagonal garden it can be adapted and changed according to changes in ones own experience. Start small grow big. :)

We had an extensive discussion in the read-along of the PDM on the Pattern Recognition chapter with many interesting and beautiful examples posted.
