This photo contains aesthetic structures.

The construct, “aesthetic” emerges from the implicit realms

the realm of feelings as operationalized by mammalian physiological and anatomical brain-styles. These feelings are awareness of harmonious yet energizing balance,
balance that induces changes in a system such that
the system and its environment are potentiated,
but potentiated in a very particular way,
that way being in the direction of maximum survival
and importantly,

thrival.
