Reassessment Overdue

Proportionality: Harmonious arrangement or relation of parts or elements within a whole (as in a design) [WordWeb Pro]

Design: to have as a purpose [Merriam-Webster] 

Foundation: : a basis (as a tenet, principle, or axiom) upon which something stands or is supported [Merriam-Webster]

The concepts of proportionality, design, and foundation are interrelated. Foundation forms the basis from which design develops. Proportionality is an inherent quality of nature that can be seen in the human form itself wherein symmetry though not perfect is pronounced. To a certain extent we can deduce foundational purpose from the manifestation of design. Disproportionality as in metastasis is a cause for urgent concern as the implied purpose therein is untenable with life and health. Designs amenable with flourishing states also involve proportionality reflective of underlying purposes. Political economies do so as well. The presentation below signals a deeply troubling disproportionality—a deformity that cries out for a reassessment of underlying assumptions and purposes.
