A schematic illustration of theme of Data Mechanics.
Four binary matrices are four different states of up-and-down spin configurations with their calculated energy levels. The upper left binary matrix with a checker board arrangement has the highest possible Ising model-based energy. By symmetrically grouping rows and columns, small scale blocks are formed first in the upper right matrix, and then larger blocks are seen in the lower right matrix, and then blocks of the global scale merge on the lower left matrix. The energy is successively reduced further down to the lowest one along this permuting process.
