Spring in this area brings opportunities to study plant saps as they rise and change for the season.
American Storax, commonly known as sweet gum so far seems to be the best tree to use for GEL constructs. The idea plants will provide basis for production of the materials PLUS integration into the living plant’s symbiotic subsystems.
I’ve tested many plants that grow here for those two desires. Most do not meet the requirements.
Another trait, important for less impact of the photonic devices is the ability of the plant, trees specific, to meld with the photonic structures using resins & bark. Some trees the bark is very active & the resin less so. Some, the resin, or bark, are too active and cause thermal damages when using Sun light for transfer medium mechanisms.
There is a fine balance, that universal trade off, of abilities vs cost to natural state stability. With Natural Processes, like all my Creations, I seek less impact upon living things, so the health of the trees is paramount. This balances, energy wise and everything else, in a more positive manner.
Storax, as of yet, provides the most stable, less negativity affected subject for catalyst activation. The thermal problems of other plants, especially pine, sumac, maple and oak, are greatly negated with American Storax.
Spring allows me to integrate some next designs focused on young bark and rising sap levels as Spring continues. Maturing the photonic visor designs requires usable immersive abilities built into GEL constructs. I am looking forward to experience with material extensions in the Natural State arena using sap mixing. If only lab funding were available!
I love Spring Time!
