    "...We tend to look for patterns everywhere. This   capability is embedded in our perceptual mechanism and has saved our ancestors   in critical events over millennia, from identifying a moving object in a   grassland or a threatening face in a crowd. But we also look for patterns in   data, information, facts, and stories as a central method for assimilating   knowledge. The way many of these maps and alphabets are displayed can certainly   influence our perception of reality, so it’s very likely that as representation   metaphors shift so will our sense of time and place [...] Despite this rich   graphical diversity, many projects tend to follow noticeable trends and common   principles, which in turn result in a type of emergent taxonomy. This embryonic   and evolving taxonomy provides a portrait of the current state of the practice   and reveals the initial building blocks shaping a new visual language. This   alphabet is not entirely new in the sense that many of its letters are recurrent   visual metaphors used for centuries. But some are combining and recombining old   metaphors in new original ways...."
