"Maybe this composability that we love so much is not a property of nature. May-
 be this is just a property of our brain. Maybe our brains are such that we have
 to see structure everywhere and if we can't find structure, we just give up. So
 in this way category theory is not really about mathematics, or physics; categ-
 ory theory is about our minds, how our brains work.  So it's more of epistemol-
 ogy than ontology"
