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”. Continue reading Viral Altruism and the Logic of Self-Propagation
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. Continue reading The Uncertainty Zeitgeist
The key selection factor for successful pattern self-replication in a transmission medium is the extent to which the information content of that message also (reflexively) supports the propagation of the integrated or gestalt information system represented by the networked transmission medium itself.
Continue reading Information System Reflexivity
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
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
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
The arrival of conscious observers in the Universe is not so much a miraculous surprise as a probabilistic inevitability hard-coded into the symmetries and logic of matter and physics. Continue reading Is Consciousness Inevitable ?
