Thank you for your eloquent words . The spiral is certainly central to our affinity to the cosmos. It rules our life from DNA to the Milky Way....I say. Both in growth and destruction. Its only possible opposite ,if humans can think to challenge such a force ,is the cross. It is a futile defense but it acts to reassure many somehow. I like the symbolic unison between the spiral of a clock spring and the cross of the clock face. Time!.
I also like the etymological chain for the origin of the word Craft, Kraft (as you know from German...power) and the ancient Greek kra...which is a component of Demo-cra-cy ,Bureau-cra-cy. I am sure it goes back further but i haven't found from where yet.
