If things are simple, then they are obvious to all; if they are more complex it's too easy for us to fool ourselves we've devined them. It's easy for me, it's easy for a group, and it's easy to do it on a global scale - everybody's heard of the 2008 credit-crunch. Yes?
Here's some instances of managing, or miss-managing, complexity.
- Entrenched Scientific Error
- Economic Rationalism
- Lean 6 Sigma and Statisical Process Control
What Mathematicians and Physics Have Taught us about Complexity
- Attempting to develop all Maths from something as certain as set theory and formal logic, we discovered we going have to live with inconsistencies (Bertrand Russel)
- Investigating and Analysing the wholy deterministic physical world, only to discover that when we get down to the quantum level, we have to accept it actually isn't absolutely deterministic at all (Hiesenberg, Schrödinger)
