organize the sand into its particular formations , which concurrently have their effect on the waves by influencing and structuring their form . This dynamic at play leads to the notion of a third factor , beyond that which is visible and which can only be viewed from a higher plane where it unfolds as an overriding whole within the human mind . ( Theodor Schwenk )
Interrelation & Diversity
Each crystallographic individual has within itself an inner form drive , which is invariably and everywhere counteracted by a second form modeling potential that defines all of the countless and unique peculiarities of a specific development . This function could be described as alignment or outer form-impulse . The virtue of this molding agency is necessitated by the simple fact that no natural body emerges isolated in empty space but always in correlation with all other natural bodies that happen to be on all sides in its immediate environment . The universal interdependency of all matter reveals itself as one of the highest and most important Natural Laws and as being in direct relation with causality .
In many instances in the liquid domain , cause at the same time is also effect and effect simultaneously cause , whereby they merge as an animated whole that expresses itself via a plethora of interrelationships . What can be observed within a living organism , in which cause and effect twist each other within a synchronistic interdependency , can also be observed near the sea , where waves passing over the shore
Self-organization is the rule , not the exception
Life and its representative element work against the second law of thermodynamics by facilitating the emergence of selforganized living systems that tend toward balance and beauty ( referred to as “ negentropy ”, negative entropy , according to the work of Dan Winter ). The biosphere ' s selfincreasing symbiotic abundance is the way by which it best stabilizes its balances and interdependencies . Can this really be called “ chaos ”, or might it more accurately be termed “ Cosmos ”?
Today ’ s view of the organism is characterized by a crisis of freedom . Only if we stop to perceive freedom as the exclusive attribute of an immaterial rationality and instead recog-
