Nature cannot be dissected..........

The living and holistic biosystem that is nature cannot be dissected or resolved into its parts. Once broken down, it dies. Or rather, those who break off a piece of nature lay a hold of something that is dead, and unaware that what they are examining is no longer what they think it to be, claim to understand nature. Man commits a grave error when he collects data and findings piecemeal on a dead and fragmented nature and claims to "know", "use" or "conquer" nature. Because he starts out with misconceptions about nature and takes the wrong approach to understanding it , regardless of how rational his thinking, everything winds up all wrong.
