This chapter returns to the question of structure versus dynamics, as discussed at the end of Chapter One. In a psychological context, the psynet model goes a certain distance toward resolving the structure/dynamics question: it shows how mental structures might arise as a consequence of mental dynamics. But here I will confront the question in a more general way, by describing some formal tools for thinking about and measuring the algorithmic patterns emergent from system dynamics.
