NTS: Coherence

September 27, 2011 Leave a comment

Today’s watch word is coherence, closely related to alignment.

Motivation for thinking about coherence is biology and coordination of cells in common action.

Issue is the success of coherence over randomness.  Why should there be coherence and coherent activity / coordinated activity of cells [of all kinds]. Absent some level of coherence  … randomness and perhaps chaos ensues.  Question arise about chaos.  Where does chaos fall? Is chaos ‘better’ or ‘worse’ than randomness?


Natural randomness appears easy, yet man-made randomness appears hard to generate.
