    Great observations! I’ve often been amazed by how successful systems or models (particularly from nature) can apply to more than one analogous context.
    My favorite example is the derivation of the Black-Scholes options pricing formula. It is mathematically identical to the partial differential equations related to a heat transfer problem.
