Now with nature and organic structures we are used to se these as the material ; crystals forming from complex forces down to each molocyle, but structure in the sense of shaping forms with a material assembly are quite different than this idear.
Organic patterns often follow cirtain recursive rules down to smallest detail but this is not a manufactored process , here are maby the important difference, as a manufactored assembly could very well be of a "grown" material, but if you continue the recursive method into the design, you will form organic shapes not geometric shapes, the organic method will find it's way from the ability of each molocyle ( sorry my bad spelling ), but to control a structure to form a building structure, you must chose at some point ,learn from nature not to copy nature ,but to understand how assemblies can work in an assembly ,as this is what mashines produce where nature produce somthing quite different.
True, ----- we are not as good as nature are, but replacing the recursive build up of crystals with a simple logic ,you can go a few steps ,then decide if you can place the blueprint in the structure defination but you can't overlook the first step and think you can step right into nanno world.
We can learn much from nature, but to "grow" structures, you need a different attitude than that of the nature.
