The reason for its stay of execution is because there are so many dynamics currently in play that are manifestations of the things I’ve been writing about over the past half-decade and I feel like it’s too good an opportunity to miss. And so in this second-to-last missive (at least, second-to last in its current configuration), I want to touch again on issues relating to scale, because not only do I think they’re of prime importance right now, but I’m pretty sure that they will drive what will happen next.

One of the critical ideas to grasp when seeking to change systems is the need to be able to work within and across multiples of different contexts at the same time. This is quite challenging for most of us who have lived in a world where

Just because we’ve only broadly started gaining an understanding of networks, their structures and their dynamics, it doesn’t mean they have not been at play for a very long time (at least 3.8 billion years, to be specific).

So what are the different types of distributions that exist? As it turns out, there are lots—but to avoid making your head explode from cognitive overload*—let us break it down into two key types: Gaussian and Paretian distributions.
