Every place we inhabit has been determined by visible and invisible flows: people, animals, cultures and personal histories. Continuous migrations have constantly redefined the forms and dynamics of places, which have expanded and contracted over time. Every culture had left something behind enabling another one to use it as a life source, allowing possibilities and future development. So nature, in its ability to embrace differences as a generative force and to compose life out of movement and migration, has created a condition of balance between the whole and its individual parts. This synergy, in a fragmented environment where harmonious relations between elements are established, allowed culture and life to evolve and spread. Wealth, beauty and intelligence are consequences of this meeting of diversity.
