• Alicia Juarerro’s main points according to Chris Corrigan:

    • “Nature uses constraints to generate emergence and sustain it. Constraints both limit and enable.
    • Evolution selects for resilience, adaptability, and evolvability.
    • Resilience is sustained by micro-diversity.
    • Ecosystems are sustained by distributed control rather than governing control. The key is in the links.
    • The emergence of novel practices – innovation – cannot be caused, but novelty can be enabled. You do this by catalyzing conditions that allow innovation to occur.
    • Think of constraints as phenomena that change the likelihood of things, and the probabilities of what is going on.” <– read the whole thing Chris Corrigan: Constraints that enable emergence and if you want more Professor Juarerro’s 27 minute video seems like a good place to start
