Repetition and Similarity

Idea could be stuck during past billions of years, we see similarities and repetitions every here and there in each of the creation. Could this be a boring job?




Though similar, these repetitions still come with slight excitements.

 
I had this concluded in my recent hike, thus triggering another new benefit of hiking, but without being hit by an apple.

The black dots of a bug and the seed pods of a lotus hint no connection literally, but both are staring back at me. 



I then wonder whether the creation of extraterrestrial  from the outer space and lotus plant was by the same authority since both bear some similarities: long neck, big head, and big eyes.

 

And which came first, the alien or the lotus plant? Or neither of these were original design?

 

I may have the answer in my coming hike, hopefully.

I'm sure you will find the answer. Now that you point it out, I can see the similarity between the alien and the lotus. You have very philosophical hikes.

Interesting thought, Mr. Rainfield! You lead me to wonder, and for that I thank you..

Have a great weekend!

Nie jestem wcale pewna, że znajdziesz odpowiedź na swoje pytanie . Ja jej nie udzielę, bo to są rozmyślania na zasadzie "co było pierwsze, jajko czy kura". Pozdrawiam.
I'm not at all sure that you will find the answer to your question. I fail to reply, because these are musings on the "what came first, the chicken or the egg". Yours.

We (I) need Peeps like you, who work long and hard to 'figure things out'. Because we (I) simply know nothing about anything. Everything is on faith and maybe hope. One thing maybe I do know; Most powerful force on earth is LOVE!

Great postings, Rainfield! And the photos? OUTSTANDING!

I like the way you mind works. The thoughts you are making while watching the world around you...

You should be awarded an honorable philosophy degree for your amazing talent in questioning and comparing things in nature.

Deb Crecelius said...

Never a boring job,
not with you around to point out the details and make connections with your imagination.
If you get your answer in an upcoming hike,
I hope you share with all of us!

Great questions and cool dotted things! The colors of the lotus pod and bug remind me a little of Gumby and Pokey. :)

You don't need an apple to hit you on the head to have an original thought! They seem to come easy to you -- thanks for sharing them with the rest of us.
