Living Code: The importance of visual programming. Python has a well-earned reputation for being easy to use and to learn, at least for people who have learned programming in other languages first.
Lately my kids have been very interested in programming, and I've found that Python doesn't come as easily to 6-11 year olds as it does to adult programmers. So I see two approaches to this problem, if it is a problem. One, let them use other languages than Python. Imagining the Tenth Dimension - A Book by Rob Bryanton. Thinking Enterprise. Instances of Fractal Evolution « Mindsoul’s Weblog. When couple of years ago (Nov 2006) I experienced author and biologist Dr.
Bruce Lipton‘s 2-day presentation in his seminar produced by Spirit 2000 in San Francisco, I was totally blown away by the depth of insight I got into how my biology, my health, and how my health at the cellular level, is in my complete control through my beliefs (both conscious and subconscious). But one new thing Bruce added at the end of his presentation was his talk about how patterns of life and evolution are similar to patterns of fractal geometry. Dr. Lipton who has done decades of research on cellular biology, talks about this in detail in the article called Fractal Evolution he wrote and published on his site.
Fractal Geometry. Complexity. Complexity is generally used to characterize something with many parts where those parts interact with each other in multiple ways.
The study of these complex linkages is the main goal of complex systems theory. In science, there are at this time a number of approaches to characterizing complexity, many of which are reflected in this article. Self-similarity of complex networks. Wardshelley_scifiSmaller.jpg from babilkulesi.net. Complexity. The complexity of a physical system or a dynamical process expresses the degree to which components engage in organized structured interactions.
High complexity is achieved in systems that exhibit a mixture of order and disorder (randomness and regularity) and that have a high capacity to generate emergent phenomena. Complexity across Scientific Disciplines Despite the importance and ubiquity of the concept of complexity in modern science and society, no general and widely accepted means of measuring the complexity of a physical object, system, or process currently exists.
