Many small, discrete brains talking and dancing together as a collective force. This is my vision (at a grand scale) of the type of behavior I would like to see at the end of the curriculum. Aside from “harder” concepts in science, computer science, electricity, etc., I would also like this to foster conversations around themes related to history, philosophy, psychology, etc. Emergence, for example, has been a large conceptual force in my thesis since the summer. How can known behavior and rule sets reveal patterns of beauty and complexity? Can we really control the systems we design?
