Make your life more abstract
Jimi Smoot

I am not sure I agree with you. As a pilot I see myself acting on abstractions, but I definitely don’t see

  • A plane as a complex system, rather as a complicated one. Plane flight outcome is deterministic.
  • Economy as a controllable system, being a complex one. When you say central banks have the key to control the economy, I wonder if we live on the same planet.

Complex is not complicated, complicated is not complex.

In a complicated system you know what you will get. In a complex system you don’t.
