inventing by principals with intent.

This is a subtle and fascinating discussion about creativity and developing solutions to make things better.  A rare and interesting discussion on changing the world of creation by seeing “wrongs”.  The approach uses design, electrical engineering and coding examples to explore the principal of getting things right. An amazing video and lesson.

Geoffrey West gets complexity.

This is a great video, for those who have a little complexity background.  I just wish West would mention constructal theory.  Constructal theory talks about the structural changes required for various scaled flow rates.  I mention structural flow changs and innovations in my new book.

If someone can tie biology and constructal theory into the Fiegenbaum constant, that would totally rock.  It would be a nice systems theory for biology and evolutionary process. Most likely it could be incorporated with an entropy and dissipation model factor model.  Biology could become like a fuzzy form of physics both some homestatic and homeorhetic fuzzy boundaries and trajectories. Sweet!

If you dig this video, check out West’s TED talk. He definitely has a lucky “talk” shirt which serves him well in both presentations.
