Abstract: The structures of the earth emerged through creation, and became a part of the universe and a vastness a part of an immensity in time and space. Their being is affixed to a network of patterns far wider than man's views. It is an unlimited, unmeasurable expanse of which current surroundings are the metamorphosis of growth. It is an infinite growth within finite boundaries. The beginning in time is sought, but is unknown and unimportant. Only the fact of mere existence emerges and is significant. The entity of the earth prevails for it is a creation continuing. Here is existence it is life. Life is revealed nobly as more than a structure of color and forms. Each individual fragment has life within itself and fulfills a role within a unity. There then exists an essence building to full richness and glory of presentation, revealed from the inner core, so that to know nature is to be inside and discover the crux of existence.
