(5.0) Reading this will make you smarter

Very interesting read with many digressions. Basically covers emergence, but also through mathematical formalism, Godel's theorem. Just a great intellectual experience. See if you can allocate a big chunk of time to finish it off in a week or so. It'll be rewarding.
