To Understand Is To Perceive Patterns

Patterns are everywhere. In thought, in nature, in science, in design … we continuously strive to apply order to our information experiences. Or are they there waiting for us?

It could be as simple as counting or arranging shapes. It could be as complex as flocks of birds and neuronal projections. But it applies to everything, from our ability to read words on a page to the study of neuroaesthetics.

But we are left with a question: Is the order innate, defined by biological process and evolutionary selection, or is it a construction of our neural network, and its tendencies toward pattern creation?

What do you think?
