“Everything affects everything else, and you have to understand that whole web of connections.”
M. Mitchell Waldrop, Complexity: The Emerging Science at the Edge of Order and Chaos

“It's also the principle that lies behind all of Oriental martial arts. You don't try to stop your opponent, you let him come at you-and then give him a tap in just the right direction as he rushes by. The idea is to observe, to act courageously, and to pick your timing extremely well.”
M. Mitchell Waldrop, Complexity: The Emerging Science at the Edge of Order and Chaos

“An adaptive agent is constantly playing a game with its environment. What exactly does that mean? Distilled to the essence, what actually has to happen for game-playing agents to survive and prosper?

Two things, Holland decided: prediction and feedback.”
M. Mitchell Waldrop, Complexity: The Emerging Science at the Edge of Order and Chaos
