Emergence: A unifying theme for 21st century science

Emergence: A unifying theme for 21st century science | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it

When electrons or atoms or individuals or societies interact with one another or their environment, the collective behavior of the whole is different from that of its parts. We call this resulting behavior emergent. Emergence thus refers to collective phenomena or behaviors in complex adaptive systems that are not present in their individual parts.

This Is What The Skeletons Of Famous Cartoon Characters Would Look Like | IFLScience | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it
One of the greatest things about cartoons is that normal physics and biology don’t apply. Artists are able to draw animals in a way that is exaggerated or anthropomorphized in order to build life into a character. It takes an equally creative mind to turn those drawings around and ask, “What would the anatomy of these animated characters actually look like?” South Korean artist Hyungkoo Lee has done exactly that with a series of sculptures.
