By Ben Goertzel

This publication summarizes a community of interrelated rules which i've got constructed, on and off, during the last 8 or ten years. The underlying subject is the mental interaction of order and chaos. Or, to place it differently, the interaction of deduction and induction. i'll try and clarify the connection among logical, orderly, wide awake, rule-following cause and fluid, self­ organizing, habit-governed, subconscious, chaos-infused instinct. My earlier books, The constitution of Intelligence and The Evolving brain, in brief touched in this courting. yet those books have been basically interested by different issues: SI with developing a proper language for discussing mentality and its mechanization, and EM with exploring the position of evolution in notion. They danced round the edges of the order/chaos challenge, with out ever totally getting into it. My objective in penning this booklet used to be to move on to the center of psychological method, "where angels worry to tread" -- to take on the entire sticky matters which it truly is thought of prudent to prevent: the character of realization, the relation among brain and truth, the justification of trust platforms, the relationship among creativity and psychological illness,.... All of those concerns are handled the following in a simple and unified method, utilizing a mixture of thoughts from my prior paintings with principles from chaos conception and complicated structures science.
