It reminds me of the following quote from famous naturalist John Muir(1838-1914): "When we contemplate the whole globe as one great dewdrop, striped and dotted with islands and continents flying through space with all the other stars, all singing and shining togehter as one, the whole univerese appears as an ifinite storm of beauty."

Well, nature is incredible!
Just think about yourself? sight, hearing? what is going on? how can it happen? why do we see with our eyes and not with ears and visa verse! etc.

No matter who is behind its existence, the more we know about nature, the more fascinated we become and understand how perfect and beautiful it's!

Aristotle bellieved that behind nature was a supernature (supernatural) existance and that just as a shadow on a sunny day is shadow of us, we ourselves are a shadow of the 'divinely' beautiful supernatural world.
I believe it is still apt today in that the closer we percieve nature the more wonderful it proves to be.

Anywho, hope people are still reading this post :)
