Hofstadter's Law: It always takes longer than you expect, even when you taken into account Hofstadter's Law.Recursive enumeration is a process in which new things emerge from old things by fixed rules. There seem to be many surprises in such processes - for example the unpredictability of the Q-sequence. It might seem that recursively defined sequences of that type posses some sort of inherently increasing complexity of behavior, so that the further out you go, the less predictable they get. This kind of thought carried a little further suggests that suitably complicated recursive systems might be strong enough to break out of any predetermined patterns. And isn't this one of the defining properties of intelligence? Instead of just considering programs composed of procedures which can recursively call themselves, why not get really sophisticated, and invent programs which can modify themselves - programs that can modify programs, extending them, improving them, generalizing them, fixing them, and so on? This kind of "tangled recursion" probably lies at the heart of intelligence.
