Curves of Nature and Nature of Curves

Curves of Nature and Nature of Curves

What this actually is is not all that important. I have increased the contrast to extreme to emphasise only the curves here. In that sense it is not true to what I saw "physically".

However, the point is why most of the things in nature are curved? why not rectilinear? While gravity explains curved pebbles on a river bed and I am not sure whether it explains why petals of a flower are curved too (may be it does?). Why curved objects have greater aesthetic appeal than rectilinear objects? I think it is not a subjective taste in general (none of Apple's products are rectilinear in nature unlike products made by some other companies which don't sell as much). Why is a curve perceived more beautiful in general? Is it because mind has a more healthier journey tracing the contours of a curved object from one end to other while journey along a straight line is boring for the mind?

What is mind then?

Can mind answer that?

Each of those curves is twisted and turned but when you put all those together you get a beautiful "whole"

Art is about what is inside rather than what is outside
