I see light and dark. Figure and ground. Motion and stasis. Calcium and cellulose. Geometry in the wood deck. Sine functions and golden ratio and fractals and the Fibonacci sequence in the sea shells.
Shells like these exhibit logarithmic spirals. As do galaxies, cyclones, nerves in the cornea, the curve of Half Moon Bay in California, and an Italian vegetable called Romanesco broccoli.
Galaxies, the eyeball, and a green vegetable that is, I hear, subtle and nutty in flavor. All mathematically linked.
J.L. Synge was right: "Archimedes, Leonardo, Newton—all very practical men, but with something more. A sense of wonder, perhaps. ...Very mysterious, very mysterious. And very exciting. That is the thing—excitement. You get it by being God, by constructing, and you get it by watching God, by observing things as they are."
