"The imagination of nature is far, far greater than the imagination of man."
– Richard P. Feynman
Nature is an extremely rich source of real-world tried-&-tested technologies. Many of her creations speak volumes & stand hands-down human-unmatched. Indeed, many have survived an eons gauntlet of unforgiving harsh times & far longer then we can possibly truly appreciate. In many ways, she offers a template, a guide-post & yard-stick on how to survive & play in her sandbox. We believe it might be far more intelligent to take a page out of her play-book & tap-elevate her designs to suit our needs than to try to out-pitch her with a litany of half-baked ideas, failed ideas, & that always seem to fall off the arc, her arc. In the words of Leslie Orgel, we recognise that "evolution is 'cleverer' than [we] are."
"The jungle is dark but full of diamonds."

We're especially focused on nature-tech or jungle-tech biomimicry, more to the point, animalesque zootech. Biology may not seem like technology, it's wet-'n-wild, can be highly unpredictable, even downright uncooperative & with a mind of its own. Indeed, just observing it can alter its behavior &, volatize its capabilities. Yet, it is these very qualities, of extreme variability, adaptability & anti-fragility that impart it with quintessentially sophisticated (integrated) qualities, & which we gravitate to.
"Nature shows us only the tail of the lion. But I have no doubt that the lion belongs with it even if he cannot reveal himself all at once. We see him only the way a louse that sits upon him would."
- Albert Einstein
We're into tapping that centuries-elusive nature phenomenal cryptic region of the mammalian metabolic spectrum known as torpor. This exotic & enigmatic biological state remains a biomedically completely untapped & holy-grail platform despite being a major driving force enabling certain mammals to express extraordinary resilience & tolerance in the face of what should be overwhelming odds.
