Although we rely on our senses to find geometric patterns in nature, there are also hidden shapes, unseen until intensely magnified, at the very fabric (or energy) of existence.
I would not be surprised if masters of physics that rely on technology, microscopes and mathematics will one day unlock life's greatest mysteries and explain what reality truly is in provocative and completely new ways.
Recently, I had fun searching for aspects of fractals in the environment and found broccoli in my fridge. Anyone who chops up this vegetable knows there is broccoli within broccoli, within broccoli, within broccoli.
Fragments of trees, snow, clouds and mountains that I love to photograph duplicate the whole, even though each of the smaller parts is unique in its own right. Looking out and within there is a sense that the finite world is more deeply entrenched in the realm of infinity than we imagine.
