Tree of Life Imagery at Starbucks

Not the best resolution (damn that iPhone camera) but just thought I would post the picture I saw at a Starbucks in San Francisco where I was for a DARPA meeting discussion the “laws of biology”. You see – even Starbucks is a fan of the Tree of Life.

Follow up.  After Laura wrote in asking about the origins of this picture I have searched around and found many others interested in it.  I note – the caption says “The Deeper the Roots – the Higher the Reach”.  I have not found the origins of the print but here are some other discussions

  1. Hey Jonathan – Laura in Texas. Glad to find another fan of this wonderful print – Tree of Life. I have been searching for months for a place to purchase this print. Any leads?


  2. there is a lot more ‘symmetrism,’ aka, clever integrated marketing, going on at bucks than the tree of life. if you are interested in this, email me, I do not feel comfortable posting it in public. expando@gmail.comI also have a lot of, what I consider, quantitative theories on the meaning of this– the staff, tetragrammaton, evolutionary tree, etc, that I am happy to share with any inquirers.
