A Phase Transition

Phase transition by GerardEOS

Incremental vs. Revolutionary Change

  • As described by FernandBraudel, with respect to the Industrial Revolution:

    “When one is talking about social phenomenon, rapid and slow changes are inseparable. For no society exists which is not constantly torn between the forces—whether perceived as such or not—working to undermine it. Revolutions are but the studded and short-lived volcanic eruption of this latent and long-term conflict.”

If so, what forces would are driving it, and to what kind of a reorganization of the creative landscape might it lead? How might fitness levels and the fitness landscape be altered?
