Where does biology fit in between the atom and the solar system and universe?
The atom, the building block of all structure, is seen at the bottom while the solar system, its analog in structure , has been positioned at the top of the image.  Between the two stands my daughter, Danielle, on the beaches of Newport, Rhode Island, pondering at the age of nine years where she and the rest of biology fit into the grand scheme of things.

The Atom
Artistic licence has been taken to present a series of atoms in the background of repetitive images of the part of the solar system.  The structure of the atom with its central  nucleus dominates the scene and is shown with orbiting shells containing the electrons  ( Davidoff)45828b12.800


Adrenal Asymmetry

From the Atom to the Solar System
The collage takes us from the proton  (top left) through to element and molecule and finally to strands of DNA in the first row.  The second row starts with a group of cells advances to the tissues, to the organ which in this case is the liver.

The third row represents units2unity from the organ (liver with its connections (arteries and veins to body systems and the body.

The fourth row advances from the body to the person, couple family home community.

The last row is the village advancing to the city, state country earth and solar system.

Note the similarity between the proton and the earth, and between the atom and solar system.
