He was inspired to carry out scientific research after studying projective geometry with George Adams, following a “moonlighting” second career testing whether the path curves he had learnt about applied to real forms in Nature.  This he confirmed for the forms of  many flower and leaf buds as well as for the human heart.  He found important rhythmic processes active in leaf bud forms over the winter months which correlate with planetary rhythms. He was a friend, inspirer and helper to many others.
