You probably mean Peter Deutsch's 8 Fallacies of Distributed
1. The network is reliable
2. Latency is zero
3. Bandwidth is infinite
4. The network is secure
5. Topology doesn't change
6. There is one administrator
7. Transport cost is zero
8. The network is homogeneous
which I completely agree with.
