EN-Equation(s)

I think that the world is the manifestation of one or more equations - still to be discovered. They are similar to the equations producing fractals, but much more complex.

Humans may never be able to understand them, because they are the products of these same equations and the Gödel theorem applies (see the book by Douglas Hofstadter «Gödel, Escher, Bach: an eternal golden braid»).

Some of the levels of complexity of the equation(s) : ... quarks, elementary particles, atoms, molecules, cells, organs, living organisms (... language, nevroses, psychoses, illnesses, thoughts, inventions, new theories, religions, dependencies, ...), societies, planets, planetary systems, galaxies, ...

This represents a regulated though unpredictable, ever-evolving though self-replicating, chaotic though structured universe.

A small comment.

I'd change 'self-replicating' to 'self-reproducing' thus turning the focus to the phenomenon of morphogenesis. That is, the history of changes of a (any) system. IMHO it's not replication.

As of the complexity, it gets worse, through the structural coupling that gives rise to new (unpredictable) entities. Those emerging entities reconstitute in a recursive loop the structure of the system in which they exist. Because of a continuous circle of construction/destruction of the emerging entities, one cannot speak about a regulation in any living domain: There is a regulation at any given moment, but this regulation is subject to continious dymanic morphogenesis.

(Phewwww, I finished my speech, lol)

PS: Why's all that in english??? Greek's OK, no?

Thanks for the comment. As for the language, this is supposed to be a multilingual, multicultural blog ...
