The Moments: No 6.

 Innovation, Simplicity

“The patterns are simple, but followed together, they make for a whole that is wiser than the sum of its parts. Go for a walk; cultivate hunches; write everything down, but keep your folders messy; embrace serendipity; make generative mistakes; take on multiple hobbies; frequent coffeehouses and other liquid networks; follow the links; let others build on your ideas; borrow, recycle; reinvent. Build a tangled bank.”
Steven Johnson, Where Good Ideas Come From: The Natural History of Innovation

“Nature is pleased with simplicity. And nature is no dummy”
Isaac Newton

Something about this Photo  that I love,  The gears complexity that  when added to something else makes a greater whole , , , the simplicity of natures beauty, yet the complexity to make this seed fall aerodynamically and create yet a new and complex tree, a thing of beauty and sustainability.
