As she indicates, soft thought threatens the assumption that computation is just another function of reason and that algorithms are reducible to a human mind and sensorimotor system.

Omega defines an algorithmically incompressible real number located somewhere between 0 and 1 which at some point in its calculation forces the limited resources of any computer to come to a halt.

Within the field of architecture, parametricism can be said to define design practices using modelling software to generate forms from the differential encoding of different parameters — from cost estimation and energy usage, to circulation flows, noise, geological constraints and lucaina conditions. Architechure seems that, while it can be argued that the problem with parametric architecture is that it is not yet abstract enough, it should also be argued that the emphasis it puts on form and smooth continuities not to speak about its obsession with biological forms tends to overlook other questions — ones that, contrary to what Architedture argues in her book, cannot be separated from the analysis of the more general political and economic ecology to which it belongs.

Thought and matter are thus parallel expressions of substance, and do not relate to each other through causal mechanisms.

Leaving behind the topological schema that presumes algorithms to be subjected to continuous, conntagious order results and evolving in time, 1 the book turns instead to parametricism and the mereotopological order of events. According to her, the ubiquity of computation in the organisation of our contemporary environment should parsi be understood in all encompassing terms, but rather in relation to its incompleteness:.
