To Love Wraith Tech is to Love Nature: A Pictorial Essay
What I see when I see Wraith tech.
This pictorial essay was put together for the following purposes:
as a resource for fanfic writers, to aid in describing Wraith tech
and as a statement promoting understanding and beyond the obvious in looking at Wraith culture and life which was glossed over during the wars.
as a pleasant virtual walk through Nature
Some additional thoughts to ponder:
Is there a correlation between modern humans not finding beauty in Wraith tech and the destruction of Nature and life on Earth? The UN reported in 2014 that 54% of humans now live in cities. “We tend to forget that the trees are our extended lungs and the rivers are our extended veins.”—Unknown
How has human architecture echoed Nature though the centuries? “In the woods, in a winter afternoon, one will see as readily the origin of the stained glass window with which the Gothic cathedrals are adorned, in the colors of the western sky, seen through the bare and crossing branches of the forest. Nor, I think, can any lover of nature enter the old piles of Oxford and the English cathedrals, without feeling that the forest overpowered the mind of the builder, with it ferns, its spikes of flowers, its locust, its oak, its pine, its fir, its spruce. The cathedral is a blossoming in stone, subdued by the insatiable demand of harmony in man. The mountain of granite blooms into an eternal flower, with the lightness and delicate finish, as well as aerial proportions and perspective of vegetable beauty.” –Ralph Waldo Emerson, Thoughts on Art
