Its easier for me to see an image than it is to read a line. The image is very specific and clear about the information while many,if not most, words have different meanings to different people. When I read a sentence I often find different interpretations of the words suggests different meanings of the sentence.
and bringing memories of “Asphodel, that Greeny Flower” we will see something new tomorrow.

“The entire Middle Ages had regarded Nature as a Book to be scanned for the vestige dei… The medieval Book of Nature was for contemplano like the Bible. The Renaissance Book of Nature was for applicatio and use like movable type.”
The Gutenberg Galaxy, Marshall McLuhan
An interesting statement concerning a qualitative difference between Medieval and Modern societies, the former being about seeking one’s place in the natural world and the latter about using science and technology, i.e. engineering, not to appreciate the world but to change it. Perhaps the separation of the meaning of life from the purpose of the individual—in the former you can find the thing, the Meaning of Life, but in the latter you are so busy changing things that you never experience the one meaning.
