“There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it's going to be a butterfly.” ― R. Buckminster Fuller

This quote by R. Buckminster Fuller got me thinking about the four essential stages – Spirit, Science, Action, and Return – that make up the transformational process of the Science of the Positive. When these stages work together we experience a synergistic cycle of positive transformation, which is just like the caterpillar moving through the transformational stages of becoming a butterfly. I am wondering whether you have any examples from the natural world, or any part of the world, that you think illustrate positive transformation, and I am hoping you will share them in the Comments section below.
