I'm really excited about this post, as it relates super closely to a recent paper I published (in Science!) about spontaneous organization of complex systems - like when a house builds itself somehow, or utility self-maximizes just following natural dynamics of the world. I have some fear of spamming, but I'm really excited others are thinking along these lines - so I wanted to share a post I wrote explaining the idea in that paper https://medium.com/bs3/designing-environments-to-select-designs-339d59a9a8ce

Would love to hear your thoughts!
