Emergence is a term used in philosophy, art, and science to describe how new properties and features are created as we put things together. Emergence describes a process whereby component parts interact to form synergies, these synergies
Short video and text film illustrating the idea of emergence. Emergence is a term used in philosophy, art, and science to describe how new properties and features are created as we put things together.
A pattern is any set of correlations between the states of elements, pattern formation refers to internally generated patterns. Systems that have the ability to self-organize; to create order from initial disorder.
This book is designed around four main sections, after giving an overview of emergence theory we go on to talk about patterns of correlation in general before looking at synergistic interactions that are the foundations to emergence.
Emergence is one of the central concepts within systems and complexity theory as it describes a universal process of becoming or creation, a process whereby novel features and properties emerge when we put elementary parts together as they interact and self-organize to create new patterns of organization.
In this video we will be giving a very high-level overview to the concept of emergence and the different aspects to it that we will be covering in more detail in future modules in the course.
Emergence Emergence has captured the imagination of people from many different domains, such as art, spirituality, philosophy and various domains of science. One reason for this is that it often involves the creation of surprisingly new and sometimes totally unexpected phenomena Emergence is a term used in philosophy, art, and science to describe [...]
Systems Transformation Systems transformation is a term used to describe the overall macro process of change within a system as it reaches a limit and evolves into a new regime. The metamorphosis of a caterpillar into a butterfly would be one example of a systemic transformation A transformation is a change of a [...]
Edge of Chaos The term edge of chaos describes a phase transition space between order and randomness that can create complex evolutionary dynamics The term edge of chaos is used to denote a transition space between order and disorder that is hypothesized to exist within a wide variety of systems. This transition zone [...]
