Complexity is key

Complexity is the key to our world and to making it work for all. We must engage the complexity. Since the complexity itself is increasing, we must engage more and more. How? By engaging others who have seen other parts of it. This world, these times: too complex for us? We do not “solve” complexity by ignoring parts of it. Complexity cannot be solved; it might be outgrown, it might be wrapped in a new complexity, plaited and tied with a ribbon, yet always there are stray hairs and growing; or maybe we get lost in the complexity, swimming and splashing and letting it float us. What’s in an ocean? Life and death, light and dark, movement and stillness, incomprehensibilities, vastness, lost and found, surface and profundities. All these, together.
