The reoccurring patterns of nature have long puzzled even the most devoted proponents of chance and Darwin's theory of evolution. But the Constructal Law changes the terms of this debate, and shows that a single law of physics governs the "design" behind everything that moves, whether animate or inanimate. According to the Constructal law, shapes and structures arise because they facilitate movement, in animal design, river basin design, traffic patterns, social dynamics, and technology and sports evolution.
