So we have two choices: One, we can SIMPLIFY THE SYSTEM WE MANAGE, and try to close it off from the complexities of outside connected systems. This is unlikely to work, and impossible to work in the long term. Try dropping a pebble in a pool of water; then try to stop the waves by pushing against them. It only increases the entropy (disorder) of the system. Does this mean that chaos generates order, but resistance to chaos creates disorder? I hope so, because our only other available management strategy (since we can't predict and we can't control) is to LEARN TO RIDE THE TIGER. It's a wild ride. And the more interconnected all our planet's systems become, and the larger and more complex each independent system grows, the wilder it's gonna get.
