A simple idea underlies the evolution of complexity.

It’s a simple idea with important implications. From cells to civilizations, complex systems are built on a foundation of one-dimensional patterns that choreograph three-dimensional behavior. DNA, human language, and computer code are examples of these linear arrangements. We call them sequences, and they have a common functional logic. This book invites you to explore their one-dimensional world. 

Sequences have come to govern much of the three-dimensional face of our planet, including our own cognition and behavior and the development of human civilization. To begin to understand how and why, read this book.
