002 about WATER

the Psychology of Water Water has a unique place in the psychology of humans. It is essential for life and it has a strong symbolic presence in many cultures and religions. Water is often associated with emotions and the unconscious mind. It is common for people to use water-related imagery to express their emotional states or to describe their psychological experiences. For example, someone might say that they feel 'tossed around like a boat on the ocean' to describe feeling overwhelmed or uncertain. Water is also often used as a metaphor for the passage of time and the impermanence of life. It is constantly changing and moving and it can be both soothing and destructive. These qualities make it a powerful symbol for many people. In terms of its physical effects on the body, water can have a calming and relaxing effect. For example, the sound of running water or the sight of a peaceful ocean can be very soothing and can help to reduce stress and anxiety. Overall, the


004 FRACTALS -Sea Urchin A fractal is a never ending pattern. Fractals are infinitely complex patterns that are self-similar accross different scales. ( ) Lamarck - 'Sea Urchin' (detail) Jean Baptiste (Pierre Antoine) de Monet, Chevalier de Lamarck [1744-1829] Sea urchins are sea creatures that live in oceans all over the world. Similar to sea stars, sea urchins have a water vascular system. Their spherical shape is typically small, ranging from about 3 cm to 10 cm in diameter, and their bodies are covered with a spiny shell. The skeleton of a sea urchin is also known as the test. The shells within the test of these creatures are made up of packed, fitted plates which protect them from being damaged. The spines, outlining their shell, are movable and help to camouflage or protect itself from predators. Sea urchins can vary greatly in colour. On the bottom side of a sea urchin there are five teeth that these organisms use to ingest algae and break
