Nature is disordered, powerful, and chaotic, and through fear of the chaos, we impose
a system on it. We abhor complexity and seek to simplify things whenever we can by
whatever means we have at hand. We need to have an overall explanation of what the
universe is and how it functions. In order to achieve this overall view, we develop
explanatory theories, that will give structure to natural phenomena: we classify nature
into a coherent system, which appears to do what we say it does.

In all the photos I have taken over the years,

I may never have found myself in them,

but I have always discovered myself there.
