      Complexity vs. Intelligence: Complexity is a sort of intelligence from a scientific in said that every solution to the problem should be as simple as possible, but no simpler. It means that a problem has an inherent, irreducible complexity; any attempt to simplify further than that will fail and any complexity added to it is harmful. Not many architecture books have defined a specific historical moment in the way Robert Venturi’s Complexity and Contradiction in Architecture has; a book that, published 50 years ago and in print to the present day, fundamentally changed how we look at, think and talk about architectural historian Vincent Scully’s famous assessment of Venturi’s .

    The first one is connected to Cannon's complexity paradox (), who argued that simulation games providing a realistic environment for experimentation .   This is “both/and” thinking, which the book shows can be achieved by a dynamic resolution of paradox. Thus, a basically selfish individual can also be a hero; a consequence of the complexity of being human.

    Book Description: Living systems exhibit a fundamental contradiction: they are highly stable and reliable, yet they have the capacity to adapt to changing environmental conditions. This paradoxical behavior arises from the complexity of life-a high degree of order and cooperation that emerges from relatively simple interactions among cellular.   Complexity: the paradox of order and disorder This reminds me I've been meaning to read Melanie Mitchell's book on Complexity. She's an amazing computer scientist and clear thinker and has been just as central to the Santa Fe Institute complexity program as anyone. It came out nearly 10 years ago, so I've been remiss.

Complexity bias is a logical fallacy that leads us to give undue credence to complex concepts. Faced with two competing hypotheses, we are likely to choose the most complex one. As a result, when we need to solve a problem, we may ignore simple solutions — thinking “that will never work” — and instead favor complex.

The Complexity Paradox. My friend Harry Vertelney recently reminded me of Larry Tesler's law of Conservation of Complexity. Simply put, one cannot reduce the complexity of a task.
