Cultural and cognitive information systems (and the individuals they inhabit) are implicitly oriented towards the systemic self-replication of patterned complexity. Continue reading Disentangling Cognitive Biases
Human minds are self-propagating patterns of information that are implicitly biased towards seeking biological, cultural and technological methods of reproduction. Continue reading Self-Propagating Memetic Information Systems
Just as there may never be any isolated closure and teleological endpoint to logic, physics and mathematics – there can also never be any such thing as the “one true way” or ideological and social perfection. There are only successive approximations and iterative algorithmic refinements towards a better world, without end. Continue reading There is no perfect social system
Life is notoriously difficult to pin down and unambiguously define. Continue reading The Self-Replicating Logic of Life
An ability to think in terms of systems holistically as participating in mutually reflexive causal interdependence can initially be a difficult abstraction and conceptual bridge to cross but it also reveals itself as a powerful way to understand real world systems and processes. Continue reading Culture, Technology and Information Systems as Living Entities ?
Radically divergent (or convergent) approaches face uphill battles against an entrenched intellectual intransigence and institutional conservatism. Continue reading Creativity and Innovation versus Institutional Intransigence
The emergence of structured and patterned complexity may just be an inevitable consequence of a Cosmos in which the self-replicating, iterating logical process of self-replication itself represents the simplest, low-energy (and minimal algorithmic information complexity) state of any dynamical process. Continue reading Emergent Complexity as Logical and Material Inevitability
