dc.description.abstract We study some aspects of the emergence of l´ogos from x´aos on a simple model of the universe using methods and techniques from algorithmic information and Ramsey theories. Thereby an intrinsic and unusual mixture of meaningful and (spurious) emerging laws surfaces. The emergent laws outnumber the meaningful ones, a picture which is compatible with the lawfulness hypothesis. In accord with the ancient Greek theogony one could say that l´ogos, the Gods and the laws of the universe, originate from “the void,” or from x´aos. en
