  1. Hi all, I found the answer. Let me summarise! Seaweed farms could revolutionise the world. 2% of the world's oceans are nutrient rich enough for these farms. Nutrients come from coastal erosion or oceanic upwelling. Sometimes there is nutrient pollution which causes algal blooms and dead zones. Seaweed farming can help mop up excess nutrients and restore ocean health. A new vertical column method of farming the oceans grows both kelp and shellfish and oysters and even encourages fisheries to grow in an ocean ecosystem based approach. Watch this 15 minute TED talk about seaweed feeding the

  2. OK , I notice you dismiss self-organising systems that you consider are "deterministic", for some reason and follow that by asking for an example of something that is not "deterministic". You seem to think crystallisation does not count because it follows the laws of physics. Presumably that is what you mean by "deterministic". But the scientist searches for explanations of nature that do follow the laws of physics (from which the laws of chemistry and biochemistry follow) and, if they don't, he or she argues for changing the laws of physics so that they do. Arguing that "slime" becoming l
