Sadly he suddenly passed away in at the much too early age of 55 due to a massive brain hemorrhage. My spark for writing comes from a blog recently penned by a complexity colleague Sonja Bilgnaut. This does not mean that everybody must be nice to each other; on the contrary. For example, for self-organization to take place, some form of competition is a requirement Cilliers,
Suppose further that the Japanese government convinces your largest importer the US, say to strengthen its currency to avert a further Japanese economic disaster, and that the prices of your export goods become relatively unattractive because your currency is pegged to the dollar.
Your exports weaken, currency speculators see an opportunity to sell you short and bet against your currency until it cracks, your stock market crashes and you start defaulting on loans to your biggest creditor Japan, whose banking system was already insolvent anyway.
That's the good news: Japanese banks go on cooking the books, so in the long run maybe you just default on some onerous loans and your credit rating takes a hit so capital becomes expensive.
The real bonus is you have a decent chance of replacing your corrupt dictators with a brand new set of kleptocrats. Of course, this requires a little short-term pain, since well-fed children don't riot.
Okay, maybe this isn't such good news. In exchange for a sequence of short term loans, you hand over central management of your economy to the seasoned experts who have been fixing the Asian economic crisis for all these years. I'll have to keep on looking.
That's exactly the sort of thing that philosophers would consider an important contribution. In this case, it was. But perhaps there was some interesting mathematics in his writings on vision.
What about George Berkeley's famous contributions to medicine? His most popular work was on that subject. Then again, can college texts truly be said to be popular? Give me words on that. Tar-water was the clear water drained off from a mix of pine tar and water after the mostly insoluble pine tar has settled.
The diverse other subjects connected together and so forth are philosophical. The work went through a second printing inand in he published Farther Thoughts on Tar-Water.

Things gross and low present truth's sacred clue.

Go learn'd mechanic, stare with stupid eyes, Attribute to all figure, weight and size; Nor look behind the moving scene to see What gives each wondrous form its energy. Vain images possess the sensual mind, To real agents and true causes blind.
But soon as intellect's bright sun displays O'er the benighted orb his fulgent rays, Delusive phantoms fly before the light, Nature and truth lie open at the sight: Causes connect with effects supply A golden chain, whose radiant links on high Fix'd to the sovereign throne from thence depend And reach e'en down to tar the nether end.
