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.

I will hire a team of board-certified architects and surveyors to
my castle and inform me of any secret passages and abandoned tunnels
I might not know about.
