ALL [IS] inNATURE • WE are a CIRCUMSTANCE of NATURE
As MATT RIDLEY has so succinctly suggested in his Telegraph article today:
Ancient, semi-natural woodland, rich in birds, toadstools, butterflies and flowers, was ravaged during the 20th century by the Forestry Commission itself. Astonishingly a patch of such ancient woodland was far less likely to survive if it belonged to this arm of the state than if it was in private hands. Even as private property, much of this kind of woodland was often “commercialised” with conifers at the behest of the FC. Belatedly, the commission has tried to turn itself into the guardian of ancient woodlands, but it still encourages the planting of exotic species rather than regeneration of native trees.
This needs to change. The woodlands we want are not closed-canopy forests of trees all the same age, but patchy woods with glades where oaks can spread their branches, while scrubby birch, hawthorn and rowan jostle with bracken and heather for sunlight, views can be glimpsed from hill tops and butterflies dance in the sunny clearings."
Never forgetting that which Dr. Daniel Keown has so succinctly proposed
in his epic The Spark in the Machine...
"Yin and Yang are used to describe the nature of everything in the
heavens and on Earth. It is a powerful philosophical model and one
that can always be applied to the workings of NATURE. For instance,
the day emerges from the night, becomes brighter and then at its
zenith starts forming the night again. If there is too much heat then
storm clouds will be created and cool the day down again: excessive
Yang creating Yin."
Dr. Keown goes onto say ...
"In society if capitalists (Yang) get too rich then the majority
of the workers (Yin) will rise up and overthrow them"
... as has ever been the case throughout
the entire period of the history of China.
