"The 21st Century Question: Emergently Engineering the Future"

Follow this 🧵 today and tomorrow for highlights from our 2022 #AppliedComplexity Network and Board of Trustees Symposium:

santafe.edu/events/annual-…

#Web3 #Cities #Polarization #EmergentEngineering #Decentralization
We start with a talk by SFI President David Krakauer:

"Would anyone care to guess why we're so GOOD at building transistors and so CRAP at designing drugs?"

"This thing [points to transistor] lives in a centralized system. This thing [points to cancer drug] lives in US."
"I'm going to pick on economics, because we like to do that at SFI. 'Ooh, look at that cover! So techy. Global, heat maps...' But here's 'Networks' [in the textbook]. THAT'S IT. Here's '#ComplexityEconomics.' NOTHING."

"It’s mediaschmerz—a sadness about the news cycle and news media, which is distinct from the experience of our everyday life. I’m not sure if I think this is good or bad. It simply is. Individual hope and national despair are not contradictions." @DKThomp greeneracresvaluenetwork.wordpress.com/2022/06/02/dai…

Bitcoin: A Natural Transistor for Computing Universal Value

TE^(X-ME)=-IE

Given #bitcoin's terminal monetary #entropy (ME) is zero and the network rate of adaptation (x) is greater than zero: Image
The Bitcoin network is a lossless dynamic #flow algorithm for computing infinitely reduced informational #uncertainty (-IE). Bitcoin is capable of switching and drawing infinite power into cryptographic signs through the power inequality created by its terminal locality of 0,0.
This infinite gain function generates a systemic power inequality, whereby the reduced informational uncertainty demands increased power flow through the network. This is a positive feedback function in action.

A select case of #Evolution and #Leftist Progression in the History of Economic Thought ->
From #Marxism to #Keynesian Economics to #MMT
#Complexity
Negative events will lead to negative outcomes :
#Bolshevik Revolution => #Intenational #Proletarianism & #Leninism
#Great #Depression -> #Keynesian Economics
#Chinese Cultural Revolution -> Gang of Four
#GFC -> Modern Monetary Theory #MMT
That is how to interpret history.
Anticipating #tippingpoint is the most essential thing a gifted leader has to his credit.
All non-linear events should be studied carefully by applying #physics in social sciences, such as #Chaos #Theory and Law of #Thermodynamics.
Yes, and #Murphy's #First Law might also help.

"#Thermodynamics of Far-From-Equilibrium Systems, #Biochemistry, and #Life in a Warming World"

Today's SFI Virtual Seminar by Mark Ritchie of @SyracuseU

Streaming now – follow this thread for highlights.

#Biology #Ecology #GlobalWarming
"If we look at the temperatures at which most biological #enzymes fall apart, it's upward of 50º — but most enzymatic activity fails well below that. What's causing this decline? The Standard Model doesn't account for this."

Mark Ritchie of @SyracuseU:

Here's why #GlobalWarming is not just going to be "great for plants":

Thermodynamic constraints on living systems mean rising temperatures affect diffusion and transport of molecules across membranes, and too much heat messes with #photosynthesis.

New thread! Now that we’re on a #FoodSci roll, let’s talk rolls! #1/16 Image
I want to use my rolls as an excuse to talk about my favorite #FoodSci & #Thermo concept, that’s right, it’s water activity (aw) time! 2/16 Image
Brief recap: water activity is the thermodynamic activity of water in a mixture. It’s related to (but not exactly) the molecular-level concentration of water in the mix. It’s 1.0 for pure water, then less for mixtures, 0 for things w/o water #FoodSci 3/16

Petang-petang macam ni, elok la kita bukak #thread on #Thermodynamics.

The concept of enthalpy and entropy.
Okay. The first one is enthalpy.

Dalam text book #Thermodynamics korang, ada je kan definition dia. Tapi i don't want to go through that.
Enthalpy is denoted by capital H. Not ΔH.

ΔH tu enthalpy change. Normally korang akan jumpa benda ni dalam chemical reaction.

Tapi kalau korang tengok pada one particular compound, dia ada enthalpy, H dia sendiri. (again, bukan ΔH!)
