Life is commonly considered as antithetical to death but in some ways, there may be a common ground and source between them. Continue reading Between Life and Death
A logic of self-organisation, information-pattern replication and complexity appears at every inflection of discovery to reveal itself as some kind of explanatory “master key”. Continue reading Viral Altruism and the Logic of Self-Propagation
Information density is an interesting concept. Continue reading Information Density
Substantive, meaningful content in our shared information spaces is suffering from an information-systems evolutionary selection mechanism that is implicitly biased towards continuity over coherence. Continue reading The Uncertainty Zeitgeist
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
Is consciousness an emergent phenomena from the mysteriously unintelligible sub-microscopic world of quantum mechanics ? Yes, and no. Continue reading Consciousness as Emergent Quantum Phenomena ?
Self and subjective psychological depth may be little more than a convenience – a fabrication or persistent fantasy and self-propagating illusion. Continue reading Positive Feedback Loops and the Emptiness of Self
