Gregory Bateson, although best known for his work in epistemology (structure of knowledge), anthropology, and psychiatry,
he considered himself a biologist (for lack of a better classification). Although he had an incredibly deep intellect, he
was a down-to-Earth, decent human being. As his wife (3rd wife), Lois Bateson, described: "you know what it
was about Gregory's thinking? He thought with his heart. He had a big mind, but he thought with his heart."
Gregory Bateson was decades ahead of others in his thinking. Although he was involved in the initial work of cybernetics,
his thinking went beyond cybernetics to what might be considered today as part of complexity theories. All of his work
during the latter part of his life seemed to focus on the pursuit of a theory of everything or for the ultimate
"pattern which connects."
