Details view: Comparing Natural & Conceptual Pattern Languages
Details of: The patterns 1)people create mentally and the ones 2)made by other processes of nature, need to not be confused. The one are invented, and discussed with words defined by other words and concepts, mentally. The other are patterns found in nature, discussed with words referring to aspects of the patterns found. Mingling the two semantics without losing track is possible, but it helps to be explicit about topics primarily focusing on one or the other.
