The Mathematics of Lego

Samuel Arbesman's article, "The mathematics of Lego," for Wired explores the correlation between Lego building blocks and biological ones.

I'm not sure which exudes more awesome. The article, the academic paper in the Journal of Theoretical Biology, or the complete manifest used in the study of every type of Lego piece.

Case and point: piece 54166 'Animal Dinosaur Mutant Raptor Leg Right Rear'.
