“Goethe believed that by practicing this method one could learn to consciously move back and forth between the region of relatively fixed and finished forms to the deeper realm of formative process. In the spirit of Spinoza, het was proposing that nature can be conceived in two ways – as creative power and as created product, or, in Spinoza’s terminology, as Natura naturans (“nature naturing”) and as Natura naturata (“nature natured”).”
