A metric to characterize the complexity of physical, biological and cultural systems in the universe has been proposed by Chaisson (2001; 2003) (see below).


  • How can we make this metric more precise and improve its data sets?
  • What are the limitations of this metric?
  • Can we complete the curve to understand the past (early universe) and the future (acceleration of technology)?
  • What happens if we use this metric for the early universe?
  • How well does the free energy rate density curve fit with Moore's law? If we extrapolate those two trends, do they still fit?

Progressing on these issues

We are looking for cosmologists to use this metric on the early universe. We are looking for technology scholars and statisticians to extrapolate the curve to the future.


Such a quantitative understanding will allow us to better characterize the evolution of complexity in our universe.
