Repetition is a reflection of the world we live in. From the branching of trees to the branching of neurons, we can see examples of repetition in nature. Even the foundations of language may be built upon the repetition of sounds.  Our very conception of beauty is based on forms of repetition, found in natural expressions of symmetry.  In our modern world, truth has become fused with the necessity for verification through repetition.  Repetition is ubiquitous on Earth.
