"The brain thus takes shape as a compromise between unyielding limits and nearly infinite freedom. It is like a snowflake or a sonnet, whose innumerable members remain bound to an eternal integer.
The polarity of water molecules constrains a snowflake to be a six-sided polyhedron, and a sonnet comprises fourteen lines. The universe does not contain a seven-sided snowflake or a sonnet with five quatrains. But within the expanse of these restrictions lie endless permutations of beauty.”
-Lewis, Amini, & Lannon (2000): A General Theory of Love
