    Once completed, his works are photographed and then left exposed to the elements of weather and time. The scientist fails to see the unifying principles behind the bewildering abundance of natural expressions, to address the ultimately spiritual purpose of this rich diversity, to recognize man's position as "head and heart" of the natural world. Although other factors may account for his results—for example, the exercise or the camaraderie of being out together—prior studies have suggested that nature itself may play an important role. The Irish Times described the book as "a new kind of exploration writing, perhaps even the birth of a new genre, which demands a new category of its own. Pretend you are a talk show host and interview the main character. Mr Macfarlane is the great nature writer, and nature poet, of this generation.

    In this book he writes about nature but also talks about how society writes about nature. Here are a few noteworthy contemporary artists who use natural, unconventional materials to make a statement about nature in art: Andy Goldsworthy is an artist who uses natural materials such as leaves and stones to create site-specific sculptures that reflect a relationship between the materials and their surroundings. He suggests nature's subservience merely to define its true position in relation to man, as a tool for spiritual education and perfection as discussed in "Discipline"and to distinguish the real that is, the ideal from the unreal the concretely apparent. And the moving power of idiomatic language and of the strong speech of simple men reminds us of the first dependence of language upon nature. This phenomenon may be due to differences in brain activation when viewing natural scenes versus more built-up scenes—even for those who normally live in an urban environment. No longer a catalogue of religious symbols, the Book of Nature attained a unified and coherent whole in which the meaning of its contents was discernible.

    The goal of science is to provide a theory of nature, but man has not yet attained a truth broad enough to comprehend all of nature's forms and phenomena. Nature was published in London in in Nature, An Essay. Art is Fun Making Art from Nature Making art from nature involves utilizing various elements of nature such as leaves, sticks, stones, bones, water, etc in a creative way to make a new art object. The Second Way is about creating the right to left feedback loops.
