In my recent venture into the sunlit depths, I realized that a lot of coral resemble the insides of our bodies. Looking at a giant brain coral for five minutes in the warm waters of the South China Sea, I wondered, which design came first? The brain coral or the brain of man?
Is it so that modern man will look at a brain coral and say, Hey! That’s inside my head too! And watching the swaying fingers of the sea anemone, will he rcall the villi of our small intestines?
If I were a designer and maker of myriad things, I think it would be fun to replicate the unseen and make them visible in the world too.
Sort of like an inside joke.
