Book recommendation:

Shapes: Nature's patterns: a tapestry in three parts

Philip Ball
ISBN 019960486X
Buy on Amazon /UK


The designs of butterfly wings, the baroque whorls of flowing water, the undulations of sand dunes, the branching of trees and rivers: seeing the world through Philip Ball’s eyes has been major for me. Imagine a physicist using the term "beauty" to describe a quark, in the technically complex sense of the word. The books are totally "straight" but pointed me toward a kind of empirical spirituality: awareness of the systems in which we're embedded and the self-similarity of reality across scales.
