Axioms of a New Cosmology
- Everything in the universe can be deeply purposeful, yet the universe itself is not purposeful. (see note a)
- “Generative” complexity grows through increasing individuation and unique-i-fication; not toward synthesis and unity. (see note b)
- Causal generativity means we come from unity (a nexus of shared history) and we grow toward complexity. (see note c)
a) Just think about it. If the universe were over-ridingly purposeful, there could be no creative novelty. Just the same old same old.
b) Just think about it.”Synthesis and unity” is a game-killer for creativity.
c) Just think about it.
