Evolution in biological organisms works with the same forces - that is, natural selection uses the Malthusian aspect of nature to pick and choose on the basis of utility, while constraint is reflected in evolution works with what exists, rather than starting from scratch with each generation.
This made me think of something... If plants are generally more simplistic than animals and creatures with round cells, then perhaps humanity is evolving through the same process. If you look at the structures of buildings, vehicles, and objects, we have progressed from very geometric, rectangular forms to more organic, round forms. Perhaps it is that we, and everything, need greater technology to produce round forms. In thinking of plant cells...it's easy to build a box, but think of how difficult it is for nature to create something round. And if nature does indeed create patterns (I think of ferns and crystals), think of how incredibly difficult it is to create patterns with round shapes and still have these patterns be efficient and compact.
