I have heard the speculation that 90% of our brain’s activity consists of drawing connections between things and recognizing pattern. Pattern had the power to create beauty and make connections between objects as common and disparate as nail polishes, fish scraps, beer cans, key holders, kids letters, and cartons. And we are all subjects of its powers, only those people who have never tapped their foot to a melody, written a letter, or arranged their shoes in a closet can claim ignorance to pattern.
