Our need to create order is unnatural. We humans cannot ignore, or fear, the chaos of nature, or try to control it. We can no longer do what is unnatural. There are no straight lines in the real world. One and one is two only in mathematics; in nature one and another makes three or many. When you live on an island you know the horizon is not a straight line but a circle all around where the blue of ocean meets the blue of sky. Our poor ocean where all Life began now getting more acid, fished out, may heal in time. Volcanoes will continue to make new land for a long time yet. And I sincerely hope that whoever and wherever you are you will rediscover the fascinating, beautiful, exciting chaos that is nature untouched by human hand. Nature can be found in a potted plant, a wild rat, a tree that grows in the middle of a city, with a patch of moss on the north side, insects who found a home in a hole, a fungus" Nature is Life is Nature. Life not as "my life time," which is just a tiny thread in an always spreading, changing tapestry, but all Life of this planet, And I cannot believe that we are the only planet in an unimaginably huge universe to have what we call Life. It must be a product or an aspect of all matter/energy in the universe. One day, in a less utterly materialistic civilization, L must be added or fitted into Einstein's E=MC2 -- and that, of course, is a whole other story.

Have a good day.
