El gurú de la informática, Stephen Johnson, propone que la organización espontánea y sin leyes explícitas que ocurre en las colonias de hormigas, en el cerebro humano o en las ciudades, se debe a las reglas de la emergencia según las cuales los agentes de un nivel inferior adoptan comportamientos de un nivel superior. Para demostrarlo, nos lleva en un recorrido por algunas aplicaciones de su teoría que incluyen la formación, en el futuro, de una Worl Wide Web inteligente.
