Crossing the Threshold: The Process and Interpretation of The Helix, the Equipoise and the Praxis: Symmetry: Natural and Artificial

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The square and the spiral have functioned throughout history as significant catalysts for both artists and scientists. They function as archetypal and primal metaphors appearing abundantly in nature. The square can be interpreted as representing absolute unity, or the a priori- original square defined by Leibniz as the "monad".
