Researchers found that the structure of the universe and the laws that govern its growth share more similarities than previously thought to the structure and growth of the human brain and other complex networks, such as the Internet or a social network of trust relationships between people.

"By no means do we claim that the universe is a global brain or a computer," said Dmitri Krioukov, co-author of the study from the University of California (UC), San Diego.
