Patterns in the Universe Study finds that patterns formed by spiral galaxies show that the universe may have a defined structure by Kansas State University Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! An all-sky mollweide map of the quadrupole in the distribution of galaxy spin directions. In this image, the different colors mean different statistical strength of having a cosmological quadrupole at different points in the sky.

To me, this all suggests an influential mathematical aspect to the universe, and is why I follow Tegmark in his quest to find the TOE (if it can be found), which has to be able to be expressed in mathematical terms.
