The following are but a few instances of our every-day experiences in which the magical, almost hypnotic effects, of repetition operated: the thrilling spectacle of marching soldiers, all in the same dress, same step, and same attitude; the fascination of neatly arranged flower beds of like color, structure, and texture,; the impressive sight of crowds at football games, theaters, public demonstrations; the satisfaction we derive from the geometric patterns created by ballet dancers,
chorus girls in identical costumes and movements; the feeling of order evoked by rows of methodically placed packages on the grocer’s shelf; the comforting effect of the regularity of repeat patterns in textiles and wallpapers; the excitement we experience at the sight of plane formations or birds in flight.
