Richard Taylor: Physics and The Art of Fractal Fluency In Nature

Your Outside Mindset

Episode # 18 Today it is my pleasure to introduce to you Richard Taylor, Professor,  Physics Department Head at University of Oregon. His interests are: Nanoelectronics, retinal implants, solar cells, and the visual science of fractals.  Richard Taylor specializes in experimental condensed matter and biophysics. He is the Director of Fractals Research and head of the Fractals Research Laboratory at the University of Oregon. For a complete transcript of this episode please visit treesmendus.com Richard Taylor regularly gives lectures around the world, invited by organizations as diverse as the Nobel Foundation, the White House, the Royal Society and national art galleries such as the Pompidou Centre and the Guggenheim Museum.Welcome Richard Taylor. 1)   Richard Taylor would you please start by telling us your story in the arts and sciences?It is a long and winding story. For me all my passions started when I was a little 9 year old I started to get enthralled with the patterns in nature. They look very messy, whether you are looking at a cloud, tree or a mountain. But there is something very appealing about them as well. We all know that we love nature, but for me as a little kid is was: “why is it exactly that we love nature so much?” That took in a long winding process for me that took in physics, psychology, and arts. All my career has been based on this, and trying to understand that when we say nature has got a pattern, what exactly do we mean by that?  2)   What are fractals? It’s a weird name for something that is very simple. So a fractal pattern, is simply a pattern that repeats at different sized scales. Although it is simple, nature uses it a lot. Examples of fractals are clouds in the sky, trees, and mountains. So it you take for example a tree and stand a long way from it, you will see a sort of rough pattern created by the trunk and the branches coming off. And if you walk closer, and zoom in on one of those branches, you’ll see that smaller branches come off those larger branches. And then look closely at those smaller branches, and you’ll see that twigs come off those smaller branches. So patterns are repeating at different magnifications as you look closer and closer to the tree. And that is all that a fractal is: a pattern that repeats at different magnifications. 3)   How do fractals fit with stress? So although it is a simple idea, like a say nature uses it a lot – so clouds, mountains, rivers, coastlines, even lightening, are all fractal. I have been working with psychologists and we have been investigating what is the impact on you when you look at these fractal patterns. For millions of years, we have been absolutely surrounded by fractals so it is not surprising that our human eye has evolved to accommodate them.  We have got this model that we call “fractal fluency” and what it purposes is that your eye has become fluent in the visual language of fractals. In other words, our eyes have actually evolved to look at these patterns. So when we do so, when we walk outside in nature and we stare at these fractals, it is like the visual system kind of wakes up and says “hey this is what I am meant to look at.”This opens up a floodgate of emotions and stress reduction. So when you look at one of nature’s fractal patterns, it actually reduces your stress levels by up to 60%. And this floods all the way through your body, so your whole body relaxes by that amount.

Richard Taylor - Increasing species diversity and water into the aquifer in Texas Hill Country

True Stewards

After a successful career in computers and technology, Richard Taylor and his partner Suzie Paris spent many years searching for the perfect place to begin their next adventure. In 2001 they purchased 832 acres in Texas Hill Country and named it the Blue Mountain Peak Ranch due to its position as the highest point in Mason, Texas. They began improving the ranch by cutting Ashe Juniper, first themselves and then with teams of people with chainsaws and with prescribed burns. The removal of bison, traditional livestock management, and a changing climate have contributed to Ashe Juniper exploding across the landscape of Hill Country. Containing the Ashe Juniper to the ravines has led to less runoff and more rainfall absorption, an increase in native flora and fauna, and a rebirth of springs and creeks. During our conversation, Richard and I talk about his selection criteria when shopping for a ranch, how the work done here influences San Antonio and Austin’s water supply, and the ways they control Ashe Juniper, commonly known as cedar to locals. We talk about the importance of a goal statement for most aspects in life, how rising land prices require us to rethink the economic models around land ownership, and the increase in species diversity after controlling the cedar, deer and cowbird populations. NB: Richard misspoke about the general timeframe to build an inch of topsoil. In the references section down below I’ve included a link to just one of many articles that cover this topic. Soil formation rates vary across the planet with slowest rates occurring in cold, dry regions and faster rates in hot, wet regions. There’s a lot packed into this 42-minute episode, so I hope you enjoy! --- FULL EPISODE NOTES WITH LINKS @ https://truestewards.com/richard-taylor --- --- TOPICS DISCUSSED --- 1:30 – Searching for a property at the top of its watershed 3:02 – Fire suppression and the invasion of ash juniper, commonly known as cedar 6:11 – Can you control cedar? 7:39 – Restoring the native seed inventory 10:16 – An intro to the science behind prescriptive burning 14:45 – Seeing an increase in biodiversity after fire events 17:07 – An example of linked species, the web of life 18:26 – Black-capped vireos, short-tailed hairless lizards, and student research on species diversity 20:41 – Improving water features on the ranch 21:28 – Resources helping the eco restoration efforts on the ranch 23:54 – Return of milkweed and monarch butterflies 25:04 – Sequestering carbon in our grasslands and building up the soil 26:00 – Barriers to others accessing these resources, using prescribed fire, et cetera 27:22 – The value of collaborating and sharing information with your neighbors 30:00 – Cost of land, population growth, and lessons from the Golden Mile in Massachusetts 33:59 – Partnering with Texas Parks and Wildlife to improve wildlife habitat 37:24 – An introduction to cowbirds and their impacts 39:20 – Ecotourism including hikers, bikers, campers, and student researchers 40:03 – Reiterating the impact of water on this ecosystem
