TED: Steven Strogatz - sync up

He hints at spontaneous self-organization as an underlying force (although I prefer salient feature) of nature, at all scales. To me: that force, or salient feature that can be evidenced in the laws we have devised to describe nature is actually a more appropriate definition of Life. I think I've written about that before, but the examples in this video are a very good example of the motivation behind these ideas. He doesn't present this spontaneous organization in more abnormal time scales o sizes, but it is there.
