Spontaneous Order & Complexity does not arise in defiance of The Second Law of Thermodynamics but with the help of it!… Complexity is Coarse Entropy!…
Complexity arises from the ubiquitous “Interplay of Symmetry-Breaking and Entropy” in driven-damped systems — Emergent Complexity is a form of “Coarse Damping”!
Damping is a term used in engineering to describe the elimination unwanted vibrations and fluctuations in a system. Damping usually involves the external dissipation of excessive energy.
Complexity however is not about the external dissipation energy; on the contrary it is about the internal distribution of energy. Complexity is about the internal dissymmetry/imbalance of parts, within a system, which pulls the system as a whole spontaneously to a “complex structural equilibrium”. Complexity is a “Coarse” form of damping to“thermal equilibrium”. Complexity is Coarse Uniformity! Complexity is Coarse Symmetry!
