Formula of system evolution

2 April 2010

E = evolution of systems, ie: forward progress, positive development, progressive complexity

C = System complexity

F = Feedback loop

I = Information

S = Speed of transfer

D = Effectiveness of transfer

E = C

C = F

F = I x S x D

Therefore

E = I x S x D

The evolution of a system is limited by the speed and effectiveness of information transfer within that system.
