John Muir once said “When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe”.

Welcome to my blog where the goal is gain further aesthetic, spiritual, and scientific understanding of patterns in Nature and how they are connected.

 

Patterns in Nature are the physical and sensory expressions of Nature’s objects, processes, and energy flow. A pattern in Nature is a beautiful sunflower. But it also is the flower’s aroma, oceanic currents, chemical processes in our bodies, and the flow of energy from our sun. 

From the most minuscule atomic particle to the grandest galaxies, the past, the present, and the future of every animate and inanimate being in our universe is defined by its connection to everything else.

 

We humans are composed of matter that originated with the stars. We share these basic atomic materials with every rock and bird and fish and grizzly bear that we see. We are equal partners with everything else in the universe.


As with all living beings on this earth, we humans are a highly connected, interdependent pattern in Nature that depends upon the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we eat. We gradually exchange the atomic matter that makes up our bodies about every seven years. 
Our body’s energy depends on our connection with the sun.  Directly and indirectly, the sun is responsible for the breakdown of inanimate rocks into the nutrients that nourish our food supply. And, the sun drives the photosynthetic chemistry in the plants that we and other creatures eat.

It is not an exaggeration to say that everything on this planet, including human beings, is defined by these interconnections. If any of these links were broken, Nature on any scale could not operate. Human consciousness of Nature and the conservation of these interconnections is essential for the survival of humanity on this planet.  

I invite you to become an active participant in a dialog concerning the conservation of connections in Nature. My blog posts are on the “Patterns In Nature Blog” page.

You may care to view an extensive resource list of links to information on patterns in Nature.

Patterns in Nature make beautiful pictures. You are welcome to explore my Nature photography gallery by selecting that menu item.

You may care to purchase any of my eBooks on patterns in Nature as they become available. You can see a partial list of the eBooks along the right edge of this screen. Or, you can read full descriptions of all eBooks by selecting the “My eBooks” tab item.

And finally, you might care to learn a little about me. The “About Me” page also gives you the opportunity to contact me via email, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, or LinkedIn.
