looking at them, you'd think that every snowflake is the same
there's the Zen-like response
"no two alike"
but who &+ how exactly would we know
i guess it's more so along the lines of
the definition of alike &+
the type of snowflake you're examining;
there's 3 types of snow flakes.
&the smallest ones, nano flakes, : can be exactly alike. ; it's so small that in quantum physics it's the basic molecule, therefore its the biological replication that causes it to look alike.
&small snow crystals: can look alike ; w| this definition however you're looking at a composition of snow crystals that look similar therefore concluding that the entire crystal is similar &/or "alike".
&large complex flakes: are complexly different ; it's like posing a mathematical question of how many different ways can you arrange 15 different books on a bookshelf. well you'd have to figure out the 15 different ways to put the books on the shelf multiply that by the # of shelves = the totaling combination. ; replace that with the molecular structure of snowflakes &+ whala, you have your complexity of appearance.
what does this mean to me?
i don't know, i guess if you compare the simplicity of snowflakes
being a simple pretty white crystal falling from the sky
you can replace the variable with different things in life
love, music, tears, food...
is anything really alike?
the definition &type changes the playing field
the blanketing of assimilation inTHOUGHT
forces us to believe that our subjective point of view
is the same for those that we are viewing objectively
concluding inFACT that thus,
no two things biologically are exactly the same.
&+ then well... you break it down.
