A logic of communication is stored in material artefacts and its expression and distributed embodiment in culture evolves over time.
What is a significant innovation? What are the most algorithmically concise paths in any recombinatory possibility-space between significant innovations?
The non-linear cognitive flexibility and diverse conceptual vocabulary required to describe the complex problem-space of environmental and ecological complexity is also the heuristic practise with which we might seek to successfully address it.
Does human stupidity actually serve a sociological purpose ?
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.
Life is notoriously difficult to pin down and unambiguously define.
When information and communications systems become massively autonomous, will we be able to react to the unfolding events in any competitive information and communications space?
Systems-theoretical analyses of human conflict suggest that it may be an inevitable error or fault in the self-replication of those complex patterns of information and energy that we recognise as society, technology and historical metamorphosis.
What we require most critically is insight and effective methods for sharing valuable information with other minds. This is quite probably the most difficult communication task with which to successfully engage.
We are that living matter through which the logic of self-replication self-replicates; we are not the bearers or the beneficiaries of this process, we are the medium through which it (shockwave-like) passes.
Spontaneous savant syndrome...
The primary purpose of cultural systems, sub-systems and sub- or counter-cultures is also their primary method. That is (and fundamentally): the replication of the process of self-replication.
