NATURE is amazing ... and the more one knows about nature, the more amazing it seems to be. What we know about nature ... our scientific knowledge ... is but a small part of what there is to know. The systems we use to manage society and the economy are so crude compared to the systems that exist in nature. We have an enormous amount to learn. Sadly, man built systems do a modest amount for people and quality of life, but at a huge cost to nature. This needs accounting for!
