Does Everything Come In Threes?

For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
Matthew 18:20, King James Version

As per program, the Oracle of Ottawa has kept motoring on with his little "Thinking About Thinking" project. And as fate and accident would have it, the Oracle of Ottawa thinks he has found a very important pattern of all things real and temporal. It seems that every process reduces to essentially three steps. And when these are acted on by a whole bunch of "agents" you end with some thing called a "complex adaptive system". Which on the surface appears to be immensely complicated, but in reality is something that indeed can be gamed? I will list a few examples.

Complex adaptive system....
 Labor - Capitalist - Consumer

Father - Son - Holy Ghost

Up - Down - Sideways

Buy - Sell - Hold

Rock - Paper - Scissors

Win -  Lose - Tie

Long - Short - Straddle

Capitalism - Socialism - Fascism

Well those are a few of the basic systems, I am sure there are more.  The Oracle of Ottawa will continue to ponder the subject...

Some stuff to ponder...Now I am back to think about thinking....
