Domain independent theory of change (evolution). Darwin explained the HOW in biology. I am looking at the WHY in all systems.
Thermodynamics and information theory based evolution theory and its application to artificial intelligence. I organize an Evolution and Computation meetup: http://www.meetup... Please join! We administrate the CLINE Challenge.
Questions and comments were for the most part informative and well informed. That said, there is always an individual that can't quite grasp causality or its implications. There is always an individual who would trade the stability of the whole universe for their own special needs and the disorder introduced by a cosmology that allows for miracles and back doors, demons and rapture, special exceptions and answered prayers. I don't know why such people should even come to a lecture on physics. Why such an individual would want to know what science has been able to discover and understand about constraints, especially if they are motivated by a universe without constraints. Science and exceptions are not compatible. Never will be. But we are a species of minds that seem especially and profoundly attracted to the idea of novelty, and repulsed by invariance and solidity.
