This is really interesting.
When you break things down there really must me something that explains quite a lot of things.
Have always thought about Language, biology and other sciences in terms of simple elements generating variety of complex systems.
This reminds me of the long string formulae that out hindi grammar books had. Can’t remember the details but a sentence/phrase encodes a complex rule for writing poems of various kinds. I remember rules that are to be used for evoking various emotions in poems.
Going to take a stab at the book again. The range of things this touches is amazing.
