附註 
This work presents a series of dramatic discoveries never before made public. Starting from a collection of simple computer experimentsillustrated in the book by striking computer graphicsWolfram shows how their unexpected results force a whole new way of looking at the operation of our universe. Wolfram uses his approach to tackle a remarkable array of fundamental problems in science: from the origin of the Second Law of thermodynamics, to the development of complexity in biology, the computational limitations of mathematics, the possibility of a truly fundamental theory of physics, and the interplay between free will and determinism
