The Cosmic Perspective
According complex systems, emergent properties arise as a result of changes in the web of relationships. A tiny tug somewhere, can result in a huge shift elsewhere. The same applies in real-life personal relationships. Sometimes we forget about people: old friends, schoolmates, colleagues. It is an unfortunate truth that we simply cannot keep in contact with everyone we know. But, it is still nice to hear from people you have not spoken to for many years. Sometimes it only takes that much to make somebody’s day, or change their life.
