Looking for patterns

Much of the art I create is inspired by the study of nature, science, numbers, and philosophy.  I found these quotes interesting:

…”great moments in science occur when the seeming complexity of the universe is suddenly resolved by seeing an underlying design or motif that explains things more deeply.”

“Creation is not the replacing of nothing with something or chaos with pattern.  There is no chaos;  there is a vast, living world in which the rules for specifying the pattern are so complicated that after you look at a few of them you become tired.  The creative act pulls out some more inclusive shape or progression that gathers an immense amount of complexity into a simple, satisfying notion.”

From Stephen Nachmanovitch’s book “Free Play: Improvisation in Life and Art”
