Tree Foraminifera

Single Celled Organism

The smallest of marine life

Tiny transparent tubular objects extend from a cell, pulling towards it all of the finest of rock matter. Almost like building a protective casing around it, the cell starts to grow in a tree like structure. On the microscale things grow following principles and Laws of the universe, even though the Foraminifera looks like a tree on ‘our’ scale, and might even follow the same logic in it’s behavior – is only a consequence? Or certain things are analogues through out the Scales? And if so, can’t that be a Way In to certain higher or lower scaled concepts?
