#7 as I said define word ''simple'' so I can understand you point at post #1. Plants shape is made by laws of physics not by someones opinion - to hard, to simple, to long, to heavy, to ugly, to expensive.

#7 I will catch this one for you. In basic physics, The sphere is the "simplest" form because it is the shape that requires the lease amount of "effort" or energy to maintain. Objects in nature, that have a ductile surface, will assume the shape that requires the least amount of kinetic energy to exist, whenever possible.

-and now for my next act, --a Geodesic-Bubble (ie: sphere comprised of planar pentagonal sections); --unfortunately could only be done via a geodesic wire-skeleton immersed in and lifted from a soapy tub (a 60-degree pyramid would have to be done artificially the same way!). True bubbles necessarily must be substantially round, albeit slightly egg-shaped like the Earth and Moon, --owing the effect of gravity. Some think the Moon is stationary as it always has its one side facing Earth, --however to achieve this feat, the Moon actually must rotate (-think about it...!); --this was not by accident as primitive-minded atheists would have you believe, -it was done by the universal intellect we for lack of greater perception simply called God... ~Theolibertarians International
