“In complex systems, after all, it is very hard to foresee or predict the consequences of presumed causes.

Sidney Dekker, Drift into Failure: From Hunting Broken Components to Understanding Complex Systems

“Arriving at the edge of chaos is a logical endpoint for drift. At the edge of chaos, systems have tuned themselves to the point of maximum capability.”
