Scaling links

"The effect of scale depends not on a thing in itself, but in relation to its whole environment or milieu. It is in conformity with the thing's place in nature, its field of action and reaction in the universe. Everywhere nature works true to scale, and everything has its proper size accordingly" D'Arcy Thompson. On Growth and Form 1917.
