Fractual patterns...did you know that the infinite patterns of nature like in a tree, plant, branch, leaf have been proven to relax us. A US study performed in Oregon found that we are 'hard wired' to respond to the fractuals found in nature and that they can reduce stress by 60%. This is all linked to evolution and as we have evolved from nature, the natural world is one our brains and bodies can process easily and quickly...we are automatically trained over centuries to be good at reading these patterns and our brains enjoy it. When you sit and really concentrate on some part of nature like a leaf you will be awestruck by how perfect the patterns are..I certainly am when i do this and it leaves you with an amazing sense of something bigger and it does slow you down, it can stop your brain for going into overdrive and ruminating on worries. When we experience a sense of awe in nature that is when we begin to think about things outside ourselves...it gives us pause and a chance to stop and enjoy something bigger than ourselves.
Just look closely at the picture below how utterly amazing are those patterns :-)
