Utopian approximations towards self-organisation is emergent under sufficient circumstances and in well-tuned resonances.
One thing I notice about getting older is the way that things start to get away from you...
Corporate power in the technology domain is a complex cartography but it is not indecipherable. It takes intelligence and subtlety to address the problem of autonomously self-propagating information systems that have grown too large, too fast and in all of this speed and runaway self-replication represent something of an atavistic return to a state of accelerated reproduction which in cells occurs in (or as) cancer.
There is no "best" idea, there are only "better" ones.
We are the self-replicating logic of logical self-replication itself, repetition with refinement and variation.
We are actually all a lot more random and emotional than we tend to realise.
Life is commonly considered as antithetical to death but in some ways, there may be a common ground and source between them.
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".
Information density is an interesting concept.
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.
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.
Is consciousness an emergent phenomena from the mysteriously unintelligible sub-microscopic world of quantum mechanics ? Yes, and no.
