Natures Self-Organization: Expert Radio Discussion
EMERGENCE. Biological experts discuss how Fireflies synchronize their flashing in an incredible way plus amazing insight into the discovery of Ant Pheromones from Dr. Edward O. Wilson himself.
Starlings, bees, and ants manage just fine. In fact, they form staggeringly complicated societies, all without a Toscanini to conduct them into harmony.
How? That's our question this hour. We gaze down at the bottom-up logic of cities, Google, even our very own brains.
Featured: author Steven Johnson, fire-flyologists John and Elizabeth Buck, biologist E.O. Wilson, Ant expert Debra Gordon, mathematician Steve Strogatz, economist James Surowiecki, and neurologists Oliver Sacks and Christof Koch.
Many Thanks to Frédéric Nicolet for spotting this gem!
