« All quotes from this author
 

Now, some people might look at something and let it go by, because they don't recognize the pattern and the significance. It's the sensitivity to pattern recognition that seems to me to be of great importance. It's a matter of being able to find meaning, whether it's positive or negative, in whatever you encounter. It's like a journey. It's like finding the paths that will allow you to go forward, or that path that has a block that tells you to start over again or do something else.

Thought is matter as much as the floor, the wall, the telephone, are matter. Energy functioning in a pattern becomes matter. That is all life is Ö Matter and energy are interrelated. The one cannot exist without the other, and the more harmony there is between the two, the more balance, the more active the brain cells are. Thought has set up this pattern of pleasure, pain, fear, and has been functioning inside it for thousands of years and cannot break the pattern because it has created it.

 
Jiddu Krishnamurti
 

Art is the imposing of a pattern on experience, and our aesthetic enjoyment in recognition of the pattern.

 
Alfred North Whitehead
 

You look at where you're going and where you are and it never makes sense, but then you look back at where you've been and a pattern seems to emerge. And if you project forward from that pattern, then sometimes you can come up with something.

 
Robert M. Pirsig
 

No matter how much a young man likes to think for himself, he is always trying to model himself on some abstract pattern largely derived from the example of the world around him. And a man, no matter how conservative, shows his own worth by his personal deviation from that pattern.

 
Cesare Pavese
 

I have a more fractal way of working, if you like, it is more like the way most peopleís minds actually work. They donít work in any linear way. When your mind wanders if you ever pay attention to some of the paths it takes, you generally find itís these paths of association that can link all over the place. ÖThe movements of the mind donít follow any linear pattern, they canít be explained with a mechanistic, clockwork view. You could find quantum models of how the mind works that might fit.
