The primary thought process is to first stop thinking in terms of linear imperative programming. If you can free your mind from that, you begin to realize that the world is very object oriented. A cell converts CO2 to O2. A leaf is composed of cells. A tree has branches with leaves and roots. Roots pull in nutrition and water from the soil. The leaves fall and decay around the tree, adding nutrition back to the soil. A tree grows, is cut down, turned into firewood or planks to build a house. Etc.etc.etc.

The point being, you look at nature and you see processes that are contained within other processes, and processes that interact with other processes, and suddenly processes become the key thing, and the data is just ancillary to what the processes "transform." In fact, the data is what triggers the process, not the other way around.

Sometimes it helps not do have a college degree. Wink | ;)
