In science:

When this simple feature is added to the yard-sale model, in addition to the accumulation of the total wealth by a single agent (“condensation”), we can see exponential and power-law distributions of wealth.
Stochastic Maps, Wealth Distribution in Random Asset Exchange Models and the Marginal Utility of Relative Wealth
When we implement the principle in the N -agent YS model, with α fixed to a constant value (= 0.5, say), we find that a power-law distribution is observed at intermediate values of β .

Gravity must be caused by an Agent acting constantly according to certain Laws, but whether this Agent be material or immaterial, I have left to the Consideration of my Readers.

Figure 4 shows this law (note that the plot refers to one single snapshot of a system of 1000 agents).

As a consequence, he requires a 4th law, the law of the conservation of information to argue for interventions by an intelligent agent (one hesitates to call this agent a demon) unconstrained by physical laws.
An Algorithmic Information Theory Critique of Statistical Arguments for Intelligent Design
As the law is needed to justify the intelligent agent behind design to avoid natural explanations, the law cannot be used as an argument for such design.

Stabilization of Three-Dimensional Collective Motion
The subsystems belonging to the different worlds are mutually irreducible and do not have practically anything in common (including the elementary particles and the local physical laws (interactions) between them). A conscious agent cannot say which world he is a part of.

The subsystems of a World are mutually interdependent not yet having anything in common (but the same time and the universal Schr¨odinger law) with the subsystems belonging to the alternate Worlds. A conscious agent cannot say which World he lives in.
The "Ghostly" Quantum Worlds
In this context we in fact deal with the design of games, such that when agents are assumed to behave in particular way (e.g., be law-abiding, playing in equilibrium, reinforcement learners, etc.) then a desired behavior (e.g., revenue maximization, the maximization of social surplus, etc.) will be obtained.
K-Implementation
This is consistent with basic ideas of normative systems where in order to obtain desired behavior we would like to have minimal laws that leave maximal freedom to the agents as long as they will enable to obtain the desired (”social”) behavior.
