Hidden Order

After more than a century of intensive effort, we still cannot model many basic capabilities of the CNS [Central Nervous System].  We cannot model its ability parse complex unfamiliar scenes into familiar elements, let alone its ability to construct experience-based internal models.

-John H. Holland, Hidden Order: How Adaption Builds Complexity

I like this slightly changed version:

After more than a century of intensive effort, we still cannot model many basic capabilities of the CNS [Central Nervous System].  We cannot parse its ability parse complex unfamiliar scenes into familiar elements, let alone its ability to construct experience-based internal models.

Just that one word, that comparison, that bringing into juxtaposition, that distinction, that experience which is this third, that is how matter comes into being.  Again and again.
