  2. The larval stage of large dragonflies may last as long as five years. . When the naiad is ready to metamorphose into an adult, it climbs up a reed or other emergent plant. The skin splits at a weak spot behind the head and the adult dragonfly crawls out of its larval skin, pumps up its wings, and flies off to feed on midges and flies. In flight the adult dragonfly can propel itself in six directions; upward, downward, forward, back, and side to side.

  3. In ecology, sustainability is how biological systems remain diverse and productive. Long-lived and healthy wetlands and forests are examples of sustainable biological systems. In more general terms, sustainability is the endurance of systems and processes. The organizing principle for sustainability is sustainable development, which includes the four interconnected domains: ecology, economics, politics and culture. Sustainability science is the study of sustainable development and environmental science.

    Healthy ecosystems and environments are necessary to the survival of humans and other organisms. Ways of reducing negative human impact are environmentally-friendly chemical engineering, environmental resources management and environmental protection. Information is gained from green chemistry, earth science, environmental science and conservation biology. Ecological economics studies the fields of academic research that aim to address human economies and natural ecosystems.

    Graphyne is carbon atoms, the atoms are arranged in a bi layer of uniform geometry. Graphyne's molecular lattice has extraordinary properties and potential, most notable it being the nano technological equivalent to silicon wafers. Quantum tunneling is manifested within the nanorings perpendicular to the molecular plane. Monolithic Graphyne transistor arrays may soon be a reality.
    Imagine "seeing" this section of molecular lattice oscillate as it incorporates energy in quantum increments. I speculate many strangely beautiful electromagnetic phenomenon emerge as macro-molecular structures function.
    Graphyne technology will lead to dramatic technological innovations (quantum computing) that could create a post biological society, a world where our biological existence melds with our nano-mechanical/electronic creations.
    This molecular model represents the structure and electromagnetic behavior of Graphyne. I have used animation and symbology to visualize the material.
    Cultivating mystery is a powerful tool for spurring innovation in art and science.

These videos describe the components of the exhibit "synthetic biostructure" shown at PPOW gallery in NY.NY. in Feb 2015. The exhibit was inspired by Nature.
