Patterns in Nature

Have you ever noticed how patterns pervade in various aspects of your life? There are patterns in music, in art, in architecture, in poems, and even in prayer.

Do you notice the in and out patterns in your breathing or the up and down ECG (electrocardiograph) patterns of your heart?

More on Sleep Patterns

You also have sleep-wake patterns and even patterns within sleep itself.

We see, hear, smell, and touch patterns. I’m not sure if we can taste patterns though. Maybe the food tasters can tell us.

What are Patterns?

What comes to your mind when the word ‘patterns’ is mentioned? - “repetition”, right?

Patterns are things that repeat over and over. The repetition can be in objects, or behaviour, or action.  Thus, repeated lines on your writing pad are patterns. Repeated buttons on your shirt are patterns. The hairs on your brow are patterns. Even the laugh lines on your face are patterns.

Patterns are as easy to recognize as the yellow polka dots in the bikini or the stripes on the zebra’s skin. But patterns can also be hard to notice when they involve your behaviour or action unless you sort of stand back and observe or somebody else points out the behaviour to you. Thus, maybe, you did not notice that you always run your fingers through your hair every time you are nervous. This is a pattern.

How Many Patterns Are There?

Just how many patterns are there? As many as the stars in the sky, maybe?

Just to satisfy my curiosity, I typed ‘patterns’ in my Google search, and this is what I got:

Google search for the word "patterns"
Google search for the word "patterns"

Wow! And I haven’t even typed ‘patterns in nature’ yet! So, the number of patterns is really almost limitless. No wonder, people love patterns.

Discovering Patterns in Mundane Things

You see patterns almost everywhere. There are patterns in your bedroom – just look at your blanket or your comforter. Their designs always exhibit certain patterns like flowers or stripes or zigzags or circles.

Get out of your room and look at the things in your family room – did you notice the patterns in the folds of your curtains? What about the way your books are arranged on the bookshelf? Or the way your cds or albums are stacked?  

Now, go out of your house and look around you. What do you see now? Did you notice the pattern on your door?  What about the pattern in your garden or on your pavement?

Yes we see patterns everywhere. But what I’m going to focus on this time, are patterns in nature.

Discovering Patterns in Nature

Human beings throughout history have looked for patterns in nature and natural phenomena. Observed patterns become the basis for mathematical formulae and these formulae enable us to make predictions about certain things.

For example, Aldof Zeising, a German psychologist whose main interests were mathematics and philosophy, observed that branches of trees or veins in the leaves follow a certain pattern. He also noted that this pattern is seen in the veins and nerves of the human body. He noticed that this pattern follows a certain ratio, which he called as the Golden Ratio.

According to him, “The Golden Ratio is a universal law in which is contained the ground-principle of all formative striving for beauty and completeness in the realms of both nature and art, and which permeates, as a paramount spiritual ideal, all structures, forms and proportions, whether cosmic or individual, organic or inorganic, acoustic or optical; which finds its fullest realization, however, in the human form”.

Isn’t this neat? A universal law that explains why structures follow certain patterns that leads to beauty and completeness?

This ratio also comes in other names such as: The Golden Mean, Phi, The Divine Section, The Golden Section, The Golden Cut, The Golden Proportion, and The Divine Proportion. Whatever the name is, the ratio is approximately 1.618 and you can observe this in the petals of a flower or the symmetry of the human body.

Leonardo da Vinci extensively used patterns in his art and this symmetry of the human is immortalized in his ever popular,“Vitruvian Man”.

I will not go into the mathematics of the Golden Ratio because most people are turned off by numbers and formulae. I just want to say at this point that looking for the Golden ratio especially in nature is an interesting exercise especially if you are fond of numbers. You can follow the links at the bottom of this hub if you are mathematically inclined.

But looking for patterns that make you ask “why didn’t I see that before?” is an even better exercise.

So come and enjoy with me these patterns in nature.

Must agree with BC - it is nice to find a Hub out in leftfield - a breath of fresh air.

If you have not already, take a look at Chaos Theory - it has a lot of interesting ideas about patterns in nature!

Thanks for the read :)

Love reading this Hub! Just another confirmation that God is a God of order. I am really awed by the artistic beauty of God's creation in the natural world!

Great job, Jill, and as always, phenomenal photos!

Hi badcompany,

Thank you very much for the visit and for your kind words! I truly appreciate them.

Hello Sufidreamer,

Your comment is music to my ears!

Yes, I am familiar with Chaos Theory. There was a time in my life when I really poured over articles and books that talked about it. I simply enjoyed the fractals! I think I will write something about them once I have more fractal photos. If you noticed, my photo of the fern frond is fractal in nature.

Thank you very much for the reminder!

Hi Catlyn,

It's so nice to hear from you again. Your comment warms my heart!

You are right, God's creation is simply awesome! I am always awed by what I see every time I take my photos. And I am happy that in my own small way I can present the wonders and beauty of this creation.

Thank you very much for stopping by.

paul_gibsons 7 years ago from Gibsons, BC, Canada

very nice.... but you have left out my favourite with which you are probably more than familiar anyway as a biologist/zoologist: fractals... the most beautiful, consistent and at the same time most complex patterns there exist, both artifically and naturally.

Hi Paul,

Thank you very much for visiting and leaving a comment.

I must admit, I overlooked fractals when I wrote this. Sufidreamer also reminded me of the Chaos Theory. I really love fractals and I will surely write about them as soon as I get more fractal photos. If you notice, my fern photo is fractal in nature.

Thank you very much for the reminder.

Amazing pictures--it underscores your point about pattern completely. No wonder, nature is so fascinating--patterns can be soothing and mesmerizing--like your mesmerizing close-shot of mimosa.

Nicely done.


jill of alltrades profile image

jill of alltrades 7 years ago from Philippines Author

Hello anglnwu,

Thank you very much for your kind words.

You know what, I've never paid much attention to the Mimosa flower until I started my photography adventure. The Mimosa was just something we played with when we were kids. When I learned to focus my lens on it later, I was really awed by its beauty and pattern. I just took dozens of photos from all angles! Ha ha.

Thank you very much for the visit!

It took picking up a camera and taking a class for me to start seeing all these patterns. We had an assignment to head out with our cameras and find the patterns around us. It was actually pretty fun.


jill of alltrades profile image

jill of alltrades 7 years ago from Philippines Author

Hi Camping Dan,

We have the same experience. As I said above, It was only when I started my photography adventure that I learned to pay attention to patterns around us.

There are so many things around us that we actually don't see. We look at them but we don't see them. I really learned to see when I started photography. That's why I think of myself as a photo enthusiast.

Thank you for the visit and for leaving a comment.

All the best!

maryspeller profile image

maryspeller 7 years ago

Just started reading you hub and had to answer your question about patterns in taste. Yes there are patterns in taste. Examples of this are flavours of cows milk that change through the season and your milk and butter flavours change as the grass and feed given to the cows changes. Another is the taste as food age. That may be unpleasant but food changes flavour in a predictable way. Some foods taste better when they have been kept for a few days. This includes beef and pheasant.

Sorry, I was not able to acknowledge your comments right away. We were hit by typhoon and flooding here in the Philippines and had no electricity and internet connection for a while. Even up to now, everything is not yet back to normal but we are getting there.

Nikki, your comment is awesome too!

Blue dog, you are right, nothing beats an assignment to make one more observant and take a new look at things!

Many thanks for this hub which encourages people to look for images of beauty in nature. The more you look, the more you find, the more you find the more inspired you may become!

It's always fascinating to see how mother nature figures out just what is needed for success in a harsh unforgiving world - luckily for us most of these patterns, as you've shown, appeal to us because they hold beauty and wonder.

Voting up.
