Roadmap #2: Systems Theory

We have now reached the last topic I want to touch on in what I consider the foundation-laying section of this project: systems theory. Systems theory is an approximate term I use for a single, particularly useful abstraction which seems to show up basically everywhere. It is entirely independent of this systems theory, although on a quick skim they might share certain characteristics.

Systems theory was the very last element of my first roadmap, but having made it this far and looking at the material I want to cover on it, it deserves a roadmap of its own. So, over the next couple of weeks I will talk about:

  • Systems, Properties, Elements & Rules
  • Determinism and Randomness
  • Closure and Subsystems
  • Patterns, Abstractions, and Emergence
  • Information Theory and Representation
  • Modelling and Compression
  • Gödel’s Incompleteness Theorem
  • Reality as a System
