What are Patterns?
Humans started noticing patterns in nature. Since prehistoric times, we see danger from rustles in a bush. We know someone is around from footprints. And the list goes on. Then, as humanity evolved, we observed patterns in weather, seasons, and even the core of sunflowers or the spirals of a wave.
Nature has its own order and it was clearly trying to convey a message of meaning. As we progressed, it became important to uncover the sequence of these patterns to understand the order within nature. And to replicate them in order to automate many aspects of our lives. From there, theories like Fibonacci’s sequence and many others arised. You might also recall the study of patterns from Alan Turing, the mathematician who uncovered the code of Germans in WW2 who was featured in the movie “The Imitation Game”. Simply, a pattern is a repeated design or model.
