Matryoshka

Notes

Not only by counting the number of growth rings can determine the age of a tree, but interpreting the spacing of growth rings can tell us much about it's life. How can we understand the mind if not looking backwards and examining our past. Trough time, our mind has become a mind within a mind - an endless journey of nested personalities.

I've always been fascinated by the russian Matryoska dolls. The concept of nesting dolls, growth rings and onions is with me when I think of age and personality.
