THE FINALITY & EXPECTED OUTCOME OF PROGRAMMING CODE - Differences Between Code and Pattern
As a technopreneur, FinTech consultant, software programmer & developer & in-house legal advisor, author-writer, composer and humanitarian responder, each role has its own defined functions & responsibilities.
One of the ordinary things we see in life is 'patterns'.
Patterns are usually intriguing. Patterns can be quite important in understanding life. Forms, events and actions have patterns. Everything in life seems to have some kind of pattern, even if that pattern is or has no pattern. Visual pattern can be symbolic of the deeper patterns of life that permeates so utterly through all life. As an example, the mere observation of people walking in order to see if they are overstriding with anyone else's usual walking pattern.
In music composition, certain patterns of musical structure have gained broad recognition, musicians will as a rule rework such patterns extemporaneously though in accordance with prevailing conventions. In metrically organized rhythm, recurring patterns of accented and unaccented “beats” furnish a durational substructure that necessarily affects all the other elements of composition, including the nature of melody, harmony, and texture. Metrical rhythm is nearly always present in dance music because its patterning is largely analogous to that of bodily motions and step figurations.
Codes are special. Codes by definition must carry information. Codes must transmit data and convey meaning. Codes are the deliberate inventions of intelligent consciousness. They don’t appear organically, they must be created by some form of intelligence.
Patterns can be created by anything with very little or no intelligence, but Not CODE! An example - Jellyfish are not intelligent but they are fascinating! They can't be classed as intelligent as such because they don't have a central brain. But by looking at the mathematical properties of the jellyfishes movements, researchers have found that they resembled what is called a Lévy flight, a pattern of movements documented for a variety of predators, including sharks and tuna, as they search for sparsely distributed prey. This is the first evidence of this movement pattern among jellyfish.
In information theory and computer science, a code is usually considered as an algorithm that uniquely represents symbols from some source alphabet, by encoded strings, which may be in some other target alphabet. An extension of the code for representing sequences of symbols over the source alphabet is obtained by concatenating the encoded strings. But in law, a code of law, also called a law code or legal code, is a type of legislation that purports to exhaustively cover a complete system of laws or a particular area of law as it existed at the time the code was enacted, by a process of codification.
Coding is used for communicating with computers. People use coding to give computers and other machines instructions on what actions to perform. Further, we use coding to program the websites, apps, and other technologies we interact with every day.
When I create and develop a particular programming code using Java, Python, html, C++ or mql5, I expect an end result or satisfying outcome.
