That's just an earthly example. If we want to get spacey like new age... aw, nevermind!
You know, that was a pretty awesome attempt at showing how something without a pattern has a pattern.
Because even in the example I gave, the "songs" still have a starting point and ending point. And from that, parts can be predicted.
So yeah, I think you kind of nailed it.
