An accumulation of complexity alone cannot replace the human brain. In Essay, we see that, except at the outer-most extremes, the popularity of a viral node is really not telling us anything. In fact, for the system to be able to change, and still not just spiral off into some infinite state, some vagueness is essential. While enormous values remain enormous (though not forever), even large values may dwindle or small ones grow. In a complex system the intermediate values are unpredictable enough to call random. The paper, figures, and references generated by this piece are comprised of simply random semi-organized data from the web. If you disagree with the thesis, you can always hit refresh.
