I appear to have made several fatal errors of judgement in attempting to decode culture, cognition, communication and complexity. The essence of comprehension and information that we attribute as rational, foundational and amenable to explanation is not encoded in such a way as to ever be fully decompressed, unpacked, structured and recorded. It has always…
It is the strangest thing that all of this exists. The unlikely arrival in the Cosmos of any of this human world is profound. Our world, our cultures and all of our myriad differences and similarities - it is a wonder and peculiarity in all of the vast immensity and silent, unknowing turbulence and mindless…
Complexity is a lot smarter than we are - all of our ratiobal interdictions into behavioural and sociological problems tend to amplify by displacement those problems.
We build machines to define ourselves but in neither do we find the certainty or the completeness we seek.
We are sentient nature.
The entropy of difference provides discrete patterns of information and thought with the energy, complexity and momentum they require to self-propagate.
Only nothing comes from nothing and only nothing is effortlessly produced...
Cultural change is cumulative self-gravitation.
If we seek to explain sentience and consciousness we might not be particularly comforted by what we ultimately discover.
What if there was nothing at all?
The logical necessity of recursively enigmatic self-propagation remains mysterious and somehow also essential for life and sentience.
Every act of creativity and recombinatory cultural reconfiguration is both additive and subtractive - it is an addition of complexity and structure and is simultaneously the systemic logical negation of existing methods and strategies of organisation and thought.
