[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]...in the data (patterns = knowledge), there is pattern (understanding) that connects them (relationship - attract/repel = interaction).

Zipf's law also apparently applies to economic measurements. Loyalty and credit can be similar. More interesting is if this law applies to species without ability for self-concept.

Yes....an organizational rule.
I'm trying to figure out how this would correspond to the triad which seems to govern much of human interactivity, reflected spirituality as well.
I can see how the Christian triad Father/Holy Ghost/Son, corresponds to the Mind/Nervous System/Body...and this pattern seems to be a pattern within the pattern of communication.

Three levels of communication.
The physical (body language - gestures expressions etc), nervous system (patterned vocalizations), mind (innuendo, metaphors etc.).

If you use the log(x) function you get it to fit a straight line. The data by itself is an exponential distribution.
Many phenomena grow or decline in an approximately exponential fashion.
It has to do with the growing number of connections or say complexity or say mass.

Edit - I read over it again and it's linear on a log-log scale.

... wrote:
Zipf Distributions occur naturally in many situations, for example in:

- Calls to computer operating systems
- Colors in images
- As the basis of most approaches to image compression
- City populations (a small number of large cities, a larger number of smaller cities)
- Wealth distribution (a small number of people have large amounts of money, large numbers of people have - - small amounts of money)
- Company size distribution
- Artificial intelligence (in particular, "chat bots" that can chat with humans) relies on the limited number of questions and statements that people actually write in chats.

So it's not an exponential distribution but a harmonic series and it might have something to do with connections in networks.

These connections are relationships of attraction/repulsion - interaction.
It has to do with how patterns can organize into larger balanced unities.
The repetition is iteration. A system feedback into itself - assimilating what energies are lost due to attrition - first with what is outside the system, and second with what lacks pattern, is random (chaotic).

Harmonic series as in overtones (vibrating string) in music.

In languages, if two languages were to simply add up its vocabulary then the harmonic series would be broken.
Each language is a (harmonic) unity by itself.
In terms of companies I'd expect that the harmonic series only holds true for a shared market space.
In nation-based economies there would probably be a harmonic order of companies for each nation and worldwide then national economies would probably form a harmonic order based on national economic power.

Can't help but make a connection to morse code

Patterned sequences using binary code - and reflecting the on/off neurological mechanism.
The planet is an ecosystem.  
This binary system can only have evolved first, because it is the simplest.
Sub-systems emerged, evolving from the first. So we have cross-species communication on a visceral level, underlying their own species specific forms.
These repeating patterns in Zipf's law are connectors, from sequence to sequence.

This is what is converted to code....phenomenon to noumenon - gene to meme.
In the example with the companies the market space, you spoke of was connected by the code of money....or simply mathematics referring to a connecting common supply-demand.

This is the left's ideal system...a collective of dumb individualists - organized anarchy.
The queen is not in command.
Her job is to lay eggs.

Hive mind.
No ideal, to challenge the main objective - survival.
No competing morality - amoral collectivism, running on genetics the individual is ignorant about, because if it were aware it would begin to question itself and this would make it problematic for the collective harmony of the colony - commune.

So much for altruism.

This is what happens when the culture of self interest, outweighs any welfare of anyone else. The misery of others, becomes like the images they see on their phones and devices, they express shock and sensations of instinct to act, but are too wrapped up in themselves to do anything but watch as one of their own is killed by his own idiocy. They can only feel superficial pangs of the fight instinct, but like playing video games, it is only an illusive feeling, artificial and not real enough to act on it, so they can only view it on a camera and yell in panic. Their 'altruistic yelling' is a compensation for their empty passivity and stunted narcissist psychologies. Whether this dumbass was worth saving or not is irrelevant.

Reminds me of these videos:

The Elephant has an overwhelming urge to continue feasting, but is stopped instead, enraptured with Bach's music. In the second piece, you can see that it finally trusts there to be a promise of beauty enough between the more distant notes that it manages to calm its propensity.

Lovely.

The animal being blind, has a heightened auditory sense, which makes me wonder if its responses would have been the same if it had full sight. I'd say probably. The effect of the beauty of such music is based in its form and structure, but its power comes from its absence of excess. In other words, its subtlety does not exaggerate its melodies and therefore does not stimulate any invasive moods or feelings, but is highly cognitive. The animal's brain waves were stimulated into its captivation.

Bach's Goldberg piano variations is the paragon of nuance and complexity, highly transcendent. Nature's chaos being channeled into a peaceful order. Genius and existence.

"In case you are curious, boats rush in to tsunamis for this reason: If you are at the dock and see the tsunami coming - well you can't reach safety in time. If you stay on the dock or hide in a bathroom you'll just drown or get bulldozed by the wave. If you sit in the boat at the dock then the boat will just get smashed in to the dock and/or capsized when the wave crests near the land. If you meet the tsunami out in the water, chances are it wont crest so bad and you have more room to ride along the wave while you try to climb over it."
