NATURE DOES NOT CREATE MERE PATTERNS OF "FLOW." it creates actual 3D processes and forms as described by Lancelot Law Whyte's theory of Unitary Process thinking which describes a universal "formative process" as fundamental to Nature in which asymmetry decreases leading to symmetrical 3D forms evident throughout inorganic and organic Nature. hillel.schiller@Gmail.com.
