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
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
Misunderstanding the world in fundamental ways, as we generally do, we more often (and collectively) seek continuity and security in those things which are only very rarely able to provide them… Continue reading The Outer Limits of Knowledge
