The universe is greebling.

You know that narrative ‘the world is getting faster and more complex and uncertain than ever before’? I’ve always been deeply suspicious of it, not least because it has been being said since *at least* the 1950s, and the pace of complexification in the second world war was something I think it is hard to see even today.

However, I’ve now found my own version of it thanks to a twitter in-joke and Stuart Kauffman – a version I’m happy with, for now.
