Complexity-Code: Theory Foundations & Tools  

Part 2

Linear vs. Non-Linear

In simple terms, it means proportional vs. non-proportional. Linear growth maintains a proportional correlation between resources and productivity. Complex systems can grow rapidly and un-proportionally to its inherent resources. Scientifically, the phrase ‘butterfly effect’ represents the non-linear quality; un-proportional growth of complex systems.

Effortful vs. Effortless

Simple systems’ growth requires effort investment, while complex systems grow spontaneously. In nature, there is only one direction for spontaneous transition, to flow from ‘more to less’, like a waterfall. This principle is called entropy, the rule in which hot coffee can naturally cool down, but not the other way around. Scientifically, self-organization refers to a unique structure which allows the spontaneous development of a complex system. 


Cognitive ability to exploit the potential of complex systems


Gyrotor is a special structure that uses the entropic qualities of nature to create a spontaneous growth in complex systems.
