Morphology is the study of the form and structure of living organisms. The word comes from the Greek ‘morphe’ meaning shape and ‘logos’ science. Shape is at the very heart of the mystery of embodiment. From the smallest microbe or snow crystal to huge galactic clusters, to plants, animal life and the human body, the same simple patterns reappear: circle, spiral, line, curve.
Learning to read the text of nature was in the past reserved for high initiates.
