Everything is an algorithm or Geek Powerpoints from TV
The best stuff from the last Stargate Serie (that being Stargate Universe) not the best, a ship ‘lost’ in space. A science fiction scenario that comes back once every X years (Star Trek Voyager, Battlestar Galactica, … probably more ..)
Even the great Dr McKay knew it. See his first slide in a presentation in Stargate Universe ‘S02 E15’. We never saw the rest of the slides though 🙁 wondering what they would have been.
But talking about algorithms, it is true. You find them everywhere. Our whole universe and life consists of patterns and algorithms.
Could keep on going, but you must find your own path.
