Abstract

Complexity theory assumes an emergence-based view of existence. The complexity perspective assumes that disorder, flux, change, ‘noise’, interpenetration, and difference are all properties of the world. Complexity is processual; i.e. all forms change and life co-evolves. The inherently dynamic ‘life-force’ of transformation, process, and movement is considered to be necessary and irresistible. Emergence or continual motility and instability have organized us into the kind of beings that we are.
