One complex biological system (a big mess of vines) provides perches for a batch of even more complex systems (flitting birds) while being observed by one of the most complex systems in the universe (shucks, that’s me). Trillions of specialized cells grouped into three very different organisms all interacting on the same patch of lawn. How is this possible? I can’t comprehend it, so instead I nod: “Hello, vines. Hello, birds.”
