Thanks Korg. My fascination with math was first piqued by endless vegetable fields in the San Joaquin Valley in the 1950s. Driving along the road with
my parents, I would watch the perfectly planted rows and columns flash by, row after row after row. The patterns cropping up, pun intended, depending
on what degree of arc I was perceptually referencing. Rudiment-ally similar to these blooms. I'm kind of jealous though. This guy, not only having
the sense, the ability to conceptualize these blooms, but also have the skill to design them and access to the three d printer. I'm jealous.
My wife showed me that first video a couple of nights ago and immediately I was a ten year old again riding in the back seat, staring out the window
at the spring crops in central California.
I wonder at the hypnotic effect of this kind of thing. What future it might have in therapy, or for that matter mind control. I wonder at those old
Greeks who held math as a religion and how any of them might perceive a manifestation of God in such modern wonders such as these blooms. I can see
Pythagoras watching this bloom for a minute, then an hour and falling into it forever knowing he had reached Nirvana.
