Emergence


This is a theory I learned about today in bio and I thought it was pretty interesting. Essentially, it is the idea that with enough interacting "agents" or parts with energy running through them, complexity will begin to form and patterns will emerge out of the non-complex parts. It is kind of counter intuitive at first, due to the whole decomposition thing, but I think it makes a lot of sense and can explain a lot of things. Check it.
