Colonel Dare:
I'm sorry Captain, I don't see your point. Natural phenomena of complexity pre-date human designs of similar complexity that is true. It is illogical to then state that therefore the natural phenomena are not natural after all. Live long, and prosper.

JW von Goethe on nature:
She has always thought and always thinks; though not as a man, but as Nature. She broods over an all-comprehending idea, which no searching can find out.

Mankind dwell in her and she in them. With all men she plays a game for love, and rejoices the more they win. With many, her moves are so hidden, that the game is over before they know it.

That which is most unnatural is still Nature; the stupidest philistinism has a touch of her genius. Whoso cannot see her everywhere, sees her nowhere rightly.
