Lecture 14 – Patterns: Restricted Access


Observation brings you closer to the land. The best way to observe natural patterns is to visit the same spot every day, sitting still, walking barefoot, or getting your hands in the dirt. When you visit without an agenda, that’s when you discover the most interesting things, like finding a wolf skull or having a raven fly by.

In this lesson, Jay challenges you to observe the patterns in nature and reflect or journal about their potential functions. Networking patterns can be found repeatedly in nature – mycelium, neural networks, root branching, dark matter, Internet connections, or even the trail systems of animals. You will then be introduced to ways in which these patterns can be and have been applied in our everyday human world.
