In the classical writing Odyssey of Homer, the blind prophet Tiresias advises Odysseus that: “It is the journey, not the destination.” (Homer, 1952). This poetic prose could be considered as the first recognition that the connecting links are more important than the nodes themselves. Similar ideas are basic parts of Systems theory (Von Bertalanffy, 1968) with wide application in science (e.g. control theory, operations research, social systems theory, systems biology, systems engineering and systems psychology).
