Complexity Process Information Potential

process - As the production-method for complexity, we are more interested in processes than we are in collage. Our focus lies in the investigation of producing coherence while allowing for differences, producing complexity from a basic set of limitations, by accidentally crossing information. The objective is to create the phenomenon of emergence from a limited set of ingredients. An example of a complex process that does this is for instance an evolutionary cycle. In evolution new possibilities are produced, while coherence is maintained and internal differences are allowed for, all within a relatively simple framework of rules.
By establishing a process, a result can emerge that is truly new, a result that could not- or only partly be envisaged beforehand. In this sense processes are more effective in creating newness, they show greater complexity and have a more sophisticated internal structure.
