The leaves are photographs taken by engineer John Hubacher. They are ordinary leaves, from which the top halves have been removed. As you can see, the form of the entire leaf is captured, though materially (as we presently understand the material nature of reality) there is only half a leaf.
This clearly indicates the presence of information beyond that which we readily see or accept. It indicates that we do not yet have the full picture of the nature of material reality. What type of sub atomic information encoding allows the entire form of the leaf, down to the finest details, to be recorded, in the absence of the macroscopic plant matter? Does this apply to human forms? What does this mean to our understanding of the nature of material reality?
Once we begin to accept that there is more to reality than what we see, which is generally accepted by modern science across the board – consider dark matter: we know next to nothing about most of the matter in the universe – we begin to open to concepts which once felt impossible.
