Why Do Scientists Study Patterns? 

The human mind is an indefatigable pattern seeker.  In order to survive in a hostile world, we have evolved sensitivity to patterns, which we use to predict what is going to happen to us.
Human beings like inventing patterns … Science is about digging out the secret patterns that make the universe tick.  We call these patterns the laws of nature. The most effective way for human beings to think about patterns is to use mathematics.  So we’ve convinced ourselves that the laws of nature are mathematical.
(What Shape is a Snowflake p. 172)
Mathematician & Author Ian Stewart
Threnergy models are simple geometric patterns – they help us understand how our bodies operate. They can help us envisage how they will operate … and so enable us to produce intent.
