Emergence - Order from Chaos

Posted by : Rev. Ouabache | Friday, February 5, 2010 | Published in

I completely missed it at the time, but apparently PBS's Nova series did a special on the science of emergence several years ago. Hosted by Skeptical Hero and nominee for Discordian Saint Neil Degrasse Tyson, even. Emergence, of course, is the way complex systems arise out of simple rules. How Chaos can arise from Order. It's an integral to Chaos Theory, and therefore integral Discordianism. Discordianism is, at its essence, the religion of emergence. We worship the complex from simplicity. We praise random patterns. Chaos is our goddess. Hail Eris!

This is your sermon:
