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
Subjecting our concepts of self and world to radical reconfiguration and a creative recombinatory metamorphosis is a certain path to cultivating insight, innovation and discovery. Continue reading Logical Insight into Living Systems
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 ?
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. Continue reading Conflict as mandatory error of social self-replication
