“What would you think of the heavens were the stars were all arranged at even intervals and concentric circles? Would you like to go out at night a see that? No. We like the stars scattered as they are. We also like to see when the waves break on the shore, the patterns of foam. The funny thing is you can look at those patterns hour after hour and realize that they never make an aesthetic mistake. They never do anything inelegant; just like a cat, it never makes a bad move.” – Alan Watts
