Pattern Recognition: Unlocking the Fertility of the Universe

Filed under: Patterns in Nature

I’ve read a few books in the past few months and the reoccurring theme is prevalent in all of them and in Nature, patterns.
 
In Malcolm Gladwell’s Outliers, Oriental people were inherently good at mathematics due to the recognition of a pattern within their language. The way it works is by saying a math equation for numbers above ten. Twenty is “two tens” and twenty one is “two tens one.” In this way, those who learn the language are learning how to properly add and multiply. So Asians are not really good at math, it’s just that their language allows them to see an inherent pattern.
 
In Nature, Bill Mollisson acknowledges that there are patterns in our ecosystems that produce self-sufficient and stable environments. If we work with this pattern we can work with the unstoppable force of Nature to co-creased these systems.
 
Again and again the idea of patterns creates the potential of unlocking the infinite potential in anything.
 
So I’ll leave with this note. Be observant of the world around you. There is opportunity everywhere. If you really want to make a difference and create change in this world, all you have to do is see how others before you did such things and expand on those ideas (like a spiral).
 
It’s most likely that the things you should be focusing on are right in your face staring at you, and the only thing holding you back is you.
