There is pattern everywhere or should we say everything is a pattern. It is patterned that mango seed will grow into a mango plant, baby into a grown up, and so on. These patterns exist in nature. We also tend to do things in pattern, cars are mass produced in patterns, we invented patterns to build buildings and bridges. There are also patterns in the software world like Facade and DAO (Data Access Object).

But it looks like that sometimes there could be anamolies in the patterns. The patterns may not be perfect, there may be disadvantages, or they may not be just right. In the software world there is something called anti-patterns. Sometimes in nature we see malformed plants and animals which does not seem to conform to intended behavior of pattern.
