Действительно, кто самый главный дизайнер? Неважно, как его называть - Природа, Бог, Вселенная — суть одна:) А мы все всего лишь копируем и подражаем. :)

Reminds me of pollen (upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia…) and Foraminiferas (because it is, "duuh me" (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foramini…)).
I wonder why nature came up with such intricate surface structures (for us it's for identification like in paleobotany/paleoecology: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paleobot…)...But for the beings bearing them?

Found it!
"The pollen wall protects the sperm while the pollen grain is moving from the anther to the stigma; it protects the vital genetic material from drying out and solar radiation.

The pollen grain surface is covered with waxes and proteins, which are held in place by structures called sculpture elements on the surface of the grain.

The outer pollen wall, which prevents the pollen grain from shrinking and crushing the genetic material during desiccation, is composed of two layers. These two layers are the tectum and the foot layer, which is just above the intine. The tectum and foot layer are separated by a region called the columella, which is composed of strengthening rods.

The outer wall is constructed with a resistant biopolymer called sporopollenin."

For Foraminiferas the kind of "empty" hard surface is called a "Test":
"The form and composition of their tests are the primary means by which forams are identified and classified. Most have calcareous tests, composed of calcium carbonate.[16]In other forams, the tests may be composed of organic material, made from small pieces of sediment cemented together (agglutinated), and in one genus, of silica. Openings in the test, including those that allow cytoplasm to flow between chambers, are called apertures. The test contains an organic matrix, which can sometimes be recovered from fossil samples.[21]"

Thank you! (*^U^)人(≧V≦*)/

Absolutely! There is so much so learn about anything if we take the time to, well, just "google" it!

I study biology and I must say that this is the kind of things I love about Sciences and other fields of research. I'm often surprised of how complex are really simple systems/processes/organisms, how obvious knowledge was actually arduously gained and there is this famous saying that We hear everywhere: 
"The more I learn, the more I learn how little I know." 
-- Socrates 
I believe it applies to everything and not only Sciences.

I always try to learn as much as possible about anything (philosophy, sociology, psychology, Arts, Sciences, Economics, politics, etc.). 
Polymathy is for me one of the greatest things one can achieve.
Unfortunately, In our productive and specialized societies this kind of multidisciplinary approach is considered "day-dreaming" or as a mark of "indecisiveness".
But things are changing for the better: initiatives, ideas and solutions are coming from every parts of the world and slowly but surely changing the way education (and therefore our society) is organized.
