We should look for patterns that aren’t there.
My earliest memory of repeating a pattern was playing with a handful of Lego bricks. I tried to make a car. Then a black gun.
I wasn’t any good.
I get the basic shapes of a car, hood, cabin, doors, boot and four wheels. Putting them in a different arrangement would make it wrong, make it weird.
I get that. And then, I don’t.
Sure, functional stuff need to adhere to basic convention. Sure, somethings need a timetable and regulation. But there are so many more ways to construct life. Sometimes we need to mix it up a little. In love, friendship, work and even the daily commute.
Sometimes solutions are found by challenge and challenging. From a different perspective.
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results, Einstein.
Does a car always need a driver. With streaming, do we need to own music?
Magic happens when you know when to stick to the path and when to look for patterns that aren’t there.
