Nature Lessons

  1. 1. Dr PR Arun
  2. 2. • The Natural systems are – Supremely energy efficient – Pollution free – 100% Waste recycling (Zero waste !) – Aesthetically and spiritually stimulating – Technologically supreme • Photosynthesis --- • Firefly vs. Lamps • Eye vs. Cameras • Brain vs. computers • Nerves vs. Transmission wires …
  3. 3. Every plant produce thousands of Chemicals here. However it releases is only Oxygen as emission !!! - Compare it with Our Chemical Factories !
  4. 4. • Power Generation – Electric rays, torpedo rays .. • Lighting – Bio luminescence (Fireflies ..) • Power transmission – Transmission in biological system (in Brain & Nervous system)
  5. 5. None of our present day Lighting systems can match the efficiency of these fireflies. They almost completely transform Chemical Energy into Light with zero wastage as heat !
  6. 6. There are no open ended systems in nature, All are cyclical and self sufficient
  7. 7. Chameleon’s Colour changing mechanism is still a mystery, we are trying hard to understand
  8. 8. This Morpho butterfly produce colour out of nothing !! The wings are actually transparent without ant coloured pigments Can we ever copy this ?!
  9. 9. • Physical Strength – Muscles of grass hoppers are super powerful • Co-ordination – Millipede leg movements require a super computer to simulate • Movement – Snakes, geckos,
  10. 10. Millipede leg movements require a super computer to simulate! But its primitive brain manage it too well !!
  11. 11. Movement of Snakes are super smooth. Can we ever copy it on to our vehicles ?!!
  12. 12. If You can understand its feet You can have a shoes that would defy gravity. How about walking up on the walls and across the ceiling !!! Staircases & Ladders would be History !
