    Mine is a termite cathedral.

    It is the image from:
    Emergence - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    "The ability to reduce everything to simple fundamental laws does not imply the ability to start from those laws and reconstruct the universe..The constructionist hypothesis breaks down when confronted with the twin difficulties of scale and complexity. At each level of complexity entirely new properties appear. Psychology is not applied biology, nor is biology applied chemistry. We can now see that the whole becomes not merely more, but very different from the sum of its parts."(Anderson 1972)
    I am fascinated by how simple things come together in simple structures to create extrordinarily complex things.

    That is also linked to my username "ygolo," which is "ology" backwards. "ology" is the suffix meaning "the study of." This studying (for me) is analysis. But once the basic principles are known, reconstructing the orginal thing that was studied is a daunting task in itself. It is one task I find quite fascinating. It is the reverse of analysis--synthesis.

    Just as simple termites, with simple mound building abilities can construct a "cathedral," simple elements can be used to make amazingly complex things.

    "More is different."

    I've already explained my avatar a few times already.

    It's the German writer Ernst Jnger, who wrote his memoirs Storms of Steel about his combat experiences in the First World War.

    I just absolutely love the figure he cuts in this photo. It presents the image of a quiet, but deeply reflective gentleman - an image I can easily relate to. Jack Flak, Little Linguist, and I think a few others have noted that it fits me very much. Little especially loves it.

    Mine is an NT from Ouran High School Host Club. He portrays himself as if he feels nothing, but he's really a decent chap and shows it in surprising ways.

    My INTP friend sent it to me. We joke around that he's the manatee and I'm the shark. I think it fits.
    There are two types of people in this world, sheep and sharks. Be a shark. Sharks are winners and they don't look back 'cause they don't have necks. Necks are for sheep.

    INTP Friend: Yay!
    INTP Friend: Wait....NOOOOO
