“The constructal law is the statement that for a flow system to persist in time it must evolve in such a way that it provides easier access to its currents.
This is the law of configuration generation, or the law of design.”
As published in Fifth Estate, a post-CoVid19, Green New Deal, Single-Platform, Multi-Modal, Renewables-led, Urban Light-Active-AV Transit & Farming, Biomimetic, City-optimising Desire Line for the Fourth Industrial Revolution — #MetaLoop — that addresses several wicked-problems, while paying for itself, and for many other societally-useful things.
Now endorsed by Mckinsey Mobility’s lead Mobility Consultant and Australia’s leading Renewable energy power purchasing agreement project manager, Jonathan Prendergast as an urban transit solution that best addresses several wicked problems at once. …
To celebrate the completion of NASA’s survey of the solar system, we share a new Music of the Spheres, a complexity-led, Newtonian-Relativity compliant QED for the #AsynsisConstructal geometric-thermodynamics paradigm in both space and time:
Researchers have explained why objects in the universe come in a wide variety of sizes, from the largest stars to the smallest asteroids -- and it has a lot to do with how paint cracks when it dries. When a volume is under internal tension -- as the early universe was due to gravity -- the most efficient way to relieve that tension is by 'cracking' hierarchically -- few large and many small. …
What if the universe wasn’t actually a closed system?
What if physical law and symmetries were actually forms of universal metabolism?
Where do the universal Power Laws we see all around us come from?
Where does this fractal scaling in space and time originate?
Perhaps a clue is that here on our planet, the exemplars for fine-tuned, power law-manifesting complex adaptive systems are ecosystems.
What if the Cosmos was really an open, ephemeral, energy-dissipating, information-processing, entropy-exporting, far from equilibrium system instead?
What if it was processing and dissipating an energy input while also losing that energy via various sinks into an external environment— while also doing “useful work”; transiently self-organising and self-observingly increasing its information content and complexity as an inevitable consequence of thermodynamic irreversibility physics and elementary optimal, analogical and recursive geometries? …
