Biomimetics

There is nothing more inspiring in science than nature itself. Scientists who create without studying nature are in effect acting like our creator, and ignoring what the real creator provided us for inspiration. Leonardo Da Vinci, for example, used nature to get inspired in his creations. The same applies to medicine and in neuroscience. 

If we are interested in producing an artificial element, we should use what our creator gave as a starting point. I think this is the best way to produce an artificial element safely. Also, by doing this, it is more likely that the product will be natural for humans to interact with and adapt to.
