September 29, 2000. I have been thinking about the theory behind patterns, and think I need to write them out to straighten my thoughts. First, nothing in the universe is exactly the same, a tree is not perfectly symmetrical, and the earth is not perfectly round. Therefore patterns are thought of as not perfect patterns but a general stance. Next, many people think that patterns are symmetrical, they are not, they just mean a determined object which is noticed over and over. An example, we were made to make patterns in my Computer Science class in the programming language Java. I along with of the students made a conscious effort to create something symmetrical, not thinking anything of it. The realization came to me that these patterns probably didn't need to be symmetrical to still become patterns. Drawing a tree over and over randomly across the screen is a pattern in itself even though it is not symmetrical to the eye. So my conclusion is that I must look for random patterns, not just symmetrical patterns.
