Programming life? Look for Low complexity

Good to find others with a similar sense, but a different aim.
"Both art and science are by-products of the desire to create / discover more data that is compressible in hitherto unknown ways!" 

"Add two successive Fibonacci numbers such as 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, ... and you'll get the next. The corresponding ratios 1/1, 1/2, 2/3, 3/5, 5/8, 8/13, 13/21, 21/34, ... converge to the harmonic proportion: 1/2 (square root of 5) - 1/2 = 0.618034... This so-called golden ratio divides the unit interval into segments of lengths a and b such that a/b=b. So the inverse of 0.618034... is 1.618034... whose square is 2.618034... etc. Many artists claim the human eye prefers the golden ratio over others.". link
--> successive improvements, can felt/know by a simple KPI.
Beauty is a stage, interesting is a move in the right direction.

"The algorithmic information or Kolmogorov complexity of a bitstring x is the length of the shortest program that computes x and halts. This is one of the fundamental concepts of theoretical computer science.". link
--> computers use dual digit language; bits. Life (most likely) use a different algorithm, built on a multi-digit language - from x-number of atoms. Recursive learning; learn to read, test write, evaluate.

It comes in all senses; visual, auditory, ... etc (incl. balance).

Future predictions:  "A flat minimum is a large connected region in weight-space where the error remains approximately constant.": link, pareto from the normative

And more, more, and much more...
