To understand is to perceive patterns

The Imaginary Foundation says "To Understand Is To Perceive Patterns". Albert-László Barabási, think about NETWORKS: "Networks are everywhere. The brain is a network of nerve cells connected by axons, and cells themselves are networks of molecules connected by biochemical reactions. Societies, too, are networks of people linked by friendships, familial relationships and professional ties. On a larger scale, food webs and ecosystems can be represented as networks of species. For decades, we assumed that the components of such complex systems as the cell, the society, or the Internet are randomly wired together.
