Biological and Cultural Evolution in a Common Universal Trend of Increasing Complexity

World Futures 66 (6):435-448 (2010)
In the present article, a depiction of complexity versus time will be used for the construction of a novel form of a tree of life, called The Pattern of Life, comprising the biological, cultural, and scientific forms of the evolutionary process. This diagram accentuates the implication of the successive modifications of developmental programs, in the cultural and scientific realms coupled to a feedback mechanism that is decisive for the accelerating pace of complexity growth, also suggested to be of support of a cautious prediction of future evolution
