Pleasant Patterns!

I was so tickled with this:
Do you think it matters when man changes the natural patterns of his surroundings?
The importance of our surroundings affects us more deeply than we realise. Mountain people are very different from people who live in plains. Country people are different from town people. When the patterns of his surroundings are changed, man too is certain to change. It may take a long time, but it is inevitable. That is why we must be careful in altering our surroundings if our natures are not to be changed for the worse. Do you ever wonder how the pleasant pattern in the first picture was changed into a pattern so unpleasant? It all took place gradually. This series of pictures show us how it probably happened.Great wisdom to mull over for the weekend - from the 1960s text book Pattern and Shape by Kurt Rowland

Wow. What a progression. (Note that progression is not always progress!) And of course, there is no going back!
