One can say

an effect of limitation.
A maple tree leaf looks the way it does

Human brain is the same. So is cauliflower. Its shape is the result of negotiation between the growth of the matter and the space limitations that it encounters.
Friction makes movement possible.
In order to move one has to push backwards.
When something is alive, it is changing.
The change is directed towards,

The space limitations
that life encounters
are engraved into the shape

Love is also full of friction.
When something moves against something else.
Even as simple as touching hands.
Lotka-Volterra equations describe
prey-predator dynamics in nature.
The mathematical charts
between species in time.
They represent impossibility
to fully describe and transcend.
Imagination stops at the frontiers of perception.
All we have are those traces.
The traces of life de~scribing itself.
Motion towards and outside
encountering the limits of outer space
leaving a trace of its own attempt
on the surface of the horizon.
