When I look at the world we live in, I see that all subjects are connected and weave our reality into a cohesive whole. I could look at a tree mathematically with the Fibonacci sequence, I could write a poem about the same tree, I could study the carbon sequestration capabilities and from all of those angles appreciate its value.
