There's a couple of reasons why this theme relates to Fedora 14. First, [https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Name_suggestions_for_Fedora_14 the codename for Fedora 14 is 'Laughlin']. This is after Robert Laughlin, the 1998 Nobel Prize winner in physics for the fractional quantum Hall effect research he did. Laughlin argues for a concept called 'emergence' which states: "The whole is more than the sum of its parts." Kyle's proposal shows many separate lines coming together that, when you step back, forms a solid shape as well, relating to Laughlin's concept of emergence. Secondly, Fedora is a kind of a single object - a Linux-based operating system - but it's also a community made up of many individuals from all over the world and aggregating many individual open source projects and work. So the concept also relates to what Fedora itself is.
