Signal Flow

Sometimes I like to try to imagine the topography of our digital networks. There's a giant, world-spanning webbing of wires and cables making a maze for data packets and signals. How different is the shape we see from the outside to the shape perceived by something travelling through it? Does the data see the wire as an orderly place, even when it is wrapped in loops and twisted through the walls of a building? And what would it mean if the life we perceive did that? Presented as orderly and connected but having a convoluted, messy shape that we don't see?
