Analysis

Create a word cloud for the first 4 chapters of the book:

In[3]:=
#ChapterNumber ->
   WordCloud@
    StringJoin[
     Riffle[
      #Text & /@ #Sections,
      "\n"
      ]
     ] & /@ Take[ResourceData["Full Text of A New Kind of Science", All][
    "Association"]["Chapters"], 4]
Out[3]=

See how often “rule __” appears in NKS:

In[4]:=
ReverseSort@
 Counts@StringCases[
   ResourceData["Full Text of A New Kind of Science"], "rule " ~~ x : (DigitCharacter ..) :> ToExpression[x]]
Out[4]=

Create a word cloud of rule numbers:

In[5]:=
WordCloud[
 StringCases[ResourceData["Full Text of A New Kind of Science"],
  "rule " ~~ x : (DigitCharacter ..) :> ToExpression[x]]
 ]
