I love seeing the Fibonacci, fractals, etc... manifest throughout the natural world. :nerdy: :heart: :nerdy: :heart:

and we sooooooo misunderstand plants, the chemical communication between like species and even other species is sooooo fascinating :nerdy: :heart: :nerdy: :heart:

i mean there are plants that warn others of their kind when they have detected a certain insect and the other plants start releasing chemical irritants to that specific insect :lol: :nerdy: so awesome!! !

we have so much more to learn!

Something from the past I miss in a nostalgic way are some of the fictional (painted?) images/graphics from the early 1970's that depicted incredibly detailed *vertical* cities or kingdoms/villages. Haven't found a single example online yet. Probably only existed for a few years, but I loved to stare at the posters & puzzles of them.
