Example text

Constraints are exceedingly common in the world around us . . A world without constraints would be totally chaotic . . That something is predictable implies that there exists a constraint . . Learning is worth while only when the environment shows constraint. (pp. 130–34) He also notes that order (organization) exists between two entities, A and B, only if the link is ‘conditioned’ by a third entity, C (1962, p. 255). If C symbolizes the ‘environment’, which is external to the relation between A and B, environmental constraints are what cause order (Ashby, 1956).

More specifically, for example, a red lens highlights red agents; a yellow lens highlights yellow agents; and so on. If five ‘colors’ of agents are imagined to be most important in defining the state space of an emergent phenomenon, the five relevant colored lenses could be used to highlight patterns among the relevant agents, leaving all other agents and patterns to be ignored. Pattern finding is only as good as ‘seeing’. The different tensions, like different telescopes or different colored lenses, improve seeing ability.
