Creative Confluence is one more notable e-book and a sequel to Epistemics of the Virtual, indicating that notion and mind's eye function in shut touch. In a transparent and lightweight tone, the paintings holds that rational problem-solving thoughts are such a lot proper in deterministic challenge areas while creativity is pertinent in additional probabilistic occasions.

There are hardly any loose ends and the latest developments incorporate the largest number of prior ideas. In terms of information saturation, the first ideas are aggregated over lower numbers of data than the last ideas, because the latter incorporate the first. This pattern can be recognized at different scales and in different domains but the build-up of the Creative Sigmoid stays the same at all levels (Chapter 5).
The spark of insight can be materialized only by cool deduction but keeps radiating its warmth for a long time. 1. Which we later on shall see, follows a fractal patterning. â•‡ Creation After the high energetic moment of genesis, in which all structure is reshuffled, the formation of order, by the first law of thermodynamics, is the result of losing energy to its surroundings, which are heating up (become more chaotic). When this heat loss stops, slowly, very slowly, the structure will fall apart again because the energy it is made of tends to be in equilibrium with its surroundings.
Allowing many disruptions in a row would ignore the world as is and make the system as a whole unstable and vulnerable to natural selection processes (cf. Schrödinger, 1944/2010, p. 63). In other words, an organism should not be in a rigid cold state to be able to adapt to change; it should neither be in heat because its instability would make it fall apart when confronted with resistance or unfavorable circumstances. 4. Blind variation, selective retention Darwinian evolution is governed by the principles of blind variation, asymmetric transition, and selective retention (Campbell, 1960).
