The Vortex of Life: Nature's Patterns in Space and Time

Front Cover
Floris Books, 1993 - Religion - 352 pages
Building on his earlier research published in The Field of Form, the author examines the influence of celestial motion on the form of plants, embryos and the heart. His statistical analysis of bud shapes, begun in the 1960s, suggests that all living forms are affected by patterns in time as well as space, with all of life and nature passing through vast cycles of change. The human embryo itself can be analysed in terms of the interaction of diametrically opposed vortices impinging on the organism.
