Quantcast
Moore’s three-dimensional law is a remarkable “epiphenomenon” … a statistical regularity that emerges from a swarm of unknown, mutually independent activities. In that sense, it resembles the “law” that says that each Labor Day weekend, about 450 automobile fatalities will occur in the United States.

This nationwide prediction can be made years in advance and will turn out quite accurate, despite the fact that the location and reason of each crash — each constituent microevent — are of course totally unpredictable.
