I get this feeling that any collection of basic decision units, whether it be diodes, cells, or organisms will, when it reaches a certain critical mass and an efficiency of communication, develop an emergent property which functions on inputs and outputs which are above the level of awareness of the individual units. A question I am very interested in addressing and exploring as a thinker, in whatever mode I happen to be working, is how does society-with units composed of individual humans which communicates within itself through the media and through currency (and perhaps other channels)-act as a computational and (semi? pseudo?) intelligent entity.
