Evolutionary Process

I live on Earth at present and I don’t know what I am. I know that I am not a category. I am not a thing - a noun. I seem to be a verb, an evolutionary process - an integral function of the Universe.
Buckminster Fuller, I seem to be a Verb, 1970 

Ernst Haeckel - Rhizopoda Radiata - Kunstformen der Natur - 1904

Karl Blossfeldt - Abutilon, Saxifraga Aizoon, ? - Urformen der Kunst - 1929

Rudolph Steiner - Seven planetary seals - c.a. 1907

"All life is but a poem, a movement. I am but a word, a verb, a depth, in the most savage sense, the most mystique, the most alive."
Blaise Cendrars, Der Sturm, 1913
quoted in Michel Décaudin, La crise des valeurs symbolistes: vingt ans de poésie française, 1895-1914, 1991
