'The Astronomical Patch' - Roby Milling

Postby robymilling » Tue May 16, 2017 1:29 pm

I made a music video combining one of my tracks with photos of dawn of the patch - the photos gradually assemble themselves

Birds do it, bees do it, even educated sawflies do it

Birds do it, bees do it, even educated sawflies do it. Yes, sexual reproduction is popular, everywhere you look, living organisms are well and truly 'at it'.

An interesting 'counter factual' might be to consider how different the patch might be if there were no sexual reproduction - how would the world be with just aphid-style, asexual reproduction.....

Fashioned, as if from the very stuff of underworld - Fungi!

Everywhere on the patch there is an extruding and issuing. Toadstools are emerging from nooks, crannies and crevices. Agarics are bursting from the soil. Brackets are banding tree trunks. Crusts, smuts and mildews are coating branches and leaves. Tripe, jelly, ears and brains are erupting their bizzare shapes from rotting wood.

Fashioned, as if from the very stuff of underworld, from the soul of beneath.

Fungi are brilliant!...here's why...

Why do things look like other things? - Roby Milling

Blog post - "Why do things look like other things?" - https://goo.gl/8z3192
Why do things in nature often look like other, completely unrelated, things in nature? The answer to this points to a regularity, order and unity in nature...and to patterns.
