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.
Self and subjective psychological depth may be little more than a convenience – a fabrication or persistent fantasy and self-propagating illusion.
What is it that binds the Cosmos to unified principles and patterns of physical laws and constants ?
Even apparently useless phenomena usually have an implicit purpose or reason to exist. It just requires a little lateral thought to untangle the complexity a little…
Consider this unravelling vessel, this body…
