Image: Patterns That Repeat

I remember when I first read about how many times the Fibonacci sequence is found in nature — it seems to be the most efficient way to pack things spirally — or when reading one of the introductions to network theory I began to glimpse how powerful the idea, and the pattern, of a network was. It’s not entirely clear with me what or how to think about such regular patterns in our natural, or cultural, worlds, but the tree is another of them. This image of river beds in the California Baja could just as easily be images of blood vessels to profiles of trees in winter.
