Listening to the @sfiscience #complexityscience pod by @michaelgarfield on 'semantic information' with Artem Kolchinsky and read his paper on same with David Wolpert.

This is exciting stuff, although it shocks me that this field is so ... basic?

Some notes and questions:
First, the attempt to link matter to information is a great one, and one of the most important pieces of basic science right now, even if few take it seriously.

Second, wanting to avoid philosophical quagmires is not just understandable, it is admirable.

But, still ...
Just because avoiding philosophy is a good idea, it doesn't mean that jumping into formalism without unpacking first or second order implications, is reasonable or viable.

Economics has done this incredibly irresponsible (paging @ole_b_peters...) to vast ill effect.

THREAD: What is complexity? Concepts as introduced by @EcoLabs + @Ecocene / @cecanexus, with notes especially from the perspective of behavioural medicine. Full poster here:…
1. Feedback

Note: There are many different terms for two types of feedback loops, e.g.
- Positive vs. negative
- Amplifying vs. stabilizing
- Reinforcing vs. balancing

Take a moment to consider how these play out in your theory of change.
2. Emergence

Note: You can't understand a complex system by merely looking at one part.

According to Doyne Farmer, non-linearity is necessary for emergence. I've been trying to look for a piece that explains this simply, let me know if you have one in mind!
