“There are only patterns, patterns on top of patterns, patterns that affect other patterns. Patterns hidden by patterns. Patterns within patterns. If you watch close, history does nothing but repeat itself. What we call chaos is just patterns we haven’t recognized.

Chuck Palahniuk, Survivor
So I have a swirl pattern too! Except it’s on my leg
