Futility of chaos
A complex of related ideas having to do with the impossibility of generating useful work from entropy — a position which holds against the ideas that e.g:
- Our artistic creativity stems from the noisiness of human neurons;
- Randomized algorithms can exhibit performance inherently superior to deterministic algorithms;
- The human brain is a chaotic system and this explains its power; non-chaotic systems cannot exhibit intelligence.
