Most natural and artificial surfaces are rough: metals and even glasses that appear smooth to the naked eye can look like jagged mountain ranges under the microscope. There is currently no uniform theory about the origin of this roughness despite it being observed on all scales, from the atomic to the tectonic. Scientists suspect that the rough surface is formed by irreversible plastic deformation that occurs in many processes of mechanical machining of components such as milling. (1)
In a rough cosmos we try to build mirrors.
In an ever changing universe we try to see patterns.
In a living cosmos we try to analyze death.
Staring on the calm lake.
Feeling good that we see out self.
Oh, happy man.
I know you would cry if you knew there is nothing to see.
