89227 - The flowers of Mankind

N. Lygeros

Maybe it’s not obvious to you
but you have to discover
that the huge majority of flora is
constituted by the set of flowers.
And this is due to their plasticity
which has permitted to them
to evolve much more than the trees …
They have a shorter time to live
that’s why it was so important for them
to bring closer to them the insects.
This adaptation is in the core of their life.
That’s why we are talking about plasticity.
So when you admire
the diversity of flowers
you admire at the end
this plasticity
even if you don’t know it.
The diversity comes from the difference.
This isn’t an utopia
or even a dream
but the truth of reality
and the complexity
at the theory of bifurcations.
