Northern extremes. Camouflage is a key survival strategy for many animals. But what do you do if your habitat changes dramatically with the seasons? From high mountain habitats to the Arctic north, animals have developed a seasonal wardrobe to stay under cover — and stay alive.

If a complex system continually repeats something over great lengths of time it is reasonable to treat that repeated item as something that the system values, is important to the system or, that somehow is (or has become,) an essential part of the system's overall success. Universe evolution has consistently reoccurring core patterns some of which that have been repeating themselves successfully ever since the Big Bang almost 13.7 million years ago. Knowing, aligning with and using these time-proven, consistently reoccurring core patterns of progressive evolution will greatly enhance personal and group success.
