I am still trying to figure out what exactly "novelty" refers to in timewave. Quoting: Anonymous Coward 11312687
Is it change weather good or bad?

"The continuous movement of energy through the system results in fluctuations; if they are minor, the system damps them and they do not alter its structural integrity. But if the fluctuations reach a critical size, they perturb the system
. They increase the number of novel interactions within it…the elements of the old pattern come into contact with each other in new ways and make new connections. The parts reorganize into a new whole
. The system escapes
into a higher order. Ilya Prigogine (Nobel prize winner for his work on dissipative structures) said, at higher levels of
complexity, the nature of the laws of nature changes; Life feeds on entropy
. It has the potential to create new forms by allowing a shake up of old forms. The elements of a dissipative structure cooperate to bring about this transformation of the whole."
peaks are feeding, valleys are creating. entropy/negentropy(novelty)
