Page v - Institute (SFI) is a multidisciplinary graduate research and teaching institution formed to nurture research on complex systems and their simpler elements. A private, independent institution, SFI was founded in 1984, Its primary concern is to focus the tools of traditional scientific disciplines and emerging new computer...

Page 314 - Firstly, why, if species have descended from other species by insensibly fine gradations, do we not everywhere see innumerable transitional forms? Why is not all nature in confusion instead of the species being, as we see them, well defined?

Page 290 - As natural selection acts solely by the preservation of profitable modifications, each new form will tend in a fully-stocked country to take the place of, and finally to exterminate, its own less improved parent-form and other less-favoured forms with which it comes into competition.
Page 197 - A controls B if and only if the relation between A and B is such that A can drive B into whichever of B's normal range of states A wants B to be in.... for something to be a controller its states must include desires or something like desires - about the states of something (else).
