Designing by Combining

  • This is a cut-down version of John's introductory talk.
  • You may find it baffling if you did not attend
  • But you are very welcome to catch up in future sessions by asking questions.
  • See the booklist

1) Who is involved?

1 TUFF Climate Change Meeting 1 SMALL 2018.001

2) Why we are interested in synergy

2 TUFF Climate Change Meeting 1 SMALL 2018.002

3) A couple of examples of synergy

3 TUFF Climate Change Meeting 1 SMALL 2018.003

4) This is not design as we know it...

4 TUFF Climate Change Meeting 1 SMALL 2018.004

5) Nature uses a combinatorial approach in sexual reproduction

5 TUFF Climate Change Meeting 1 SMALL 2018.005

6) Focusing on relations may seem strange at first

6 TUFF Climate Change Meeting 1 SMALL 2018.006

7) But relations are more valuable than things - see my 2013 TEDx talk

7 TUFF Climate Change Meeting 1 SMALL 2018.007

8) But the logic of combining things is strange - it includes getting good things from bad things...

8 TUFF Climate Change Meeting 1 SMALL 2018.008

9) How many combinations can we juggle with in our heads?

9 TUFF Climate Change Meeting 1 SMALL 2018.009

__10) Ideally, as many as possible...(e.g. cooking is complex enough)

10 TUFF Climate Change Meeting 1 SMALL 2018.010

11) But humans get very confused when we see quite small numbers

11 TUFF Climate Change Meeting 1 SMALL 2018.011

12) This is why the synergies in large teams are much too complex for our brains to grasp

12 TUFF Climate Change Meeting 1 SMALL 2018.012

13) We get pretty confused when we try to create using combinations of more than 4 things

13 TUFF Climate Change Meeting 1 SMALL 2018.013

14) So working in clusters of 4 is a pretty good starting point

14 TUFF Climate Change Meeting 1 SMALL 2018.014

15) Why are we so surprised by the fact that a quartet of things sets up 6 relations?

15 TUFF Climate Change Meeting 1 SMALL 2018.015

16) The maths gets weird....mainly because the process of synergy creates more than (100%) of what we had

16 TUFF Climate Change Meeting 1 SMALL 2018.016

17) If you like maths...here's Euler's original law....enjoy!
