The discussion of complex increases in complexity….

Back in October, I wrote Is Your Software Complex.  This has prompted a number of discussions in multiple venues, so it seems a good idea to look at the term “Complex” in a bit more detail.

Like many words, it has a number of distinct meanings, and when one is not clear which meaning is intended, then confusion (and related problems) is sure to occur.

Roger Sessions has been writing about one meaning of complexity for about a decade. His book Simple Architectures for Complex Enterprises created an entire field of study. Overly simplifying [and with apologies to Roger], complexity in this context is a mathematical model based on the number of nodes and interconnects between the nodes.

Dave Snowden formulated the Cynefin Framework nearly 20 years ago which categorizes systems into one of four categories: Simple, Complicated, Complex and Chaotic. Once again oversimplifying, Complex is characterized by “The complex domain represents the “unknown unknowns”. Cause and effect can only be deduced in retrospect. There are no right answers“.

Clearly, these are really different topics that simply happen to share an English word. At the same time there are interesting relationships.  Calculating the Complexity [Sessions] of a Complex [Snowden] system is unlikely to be possible, simply because of the unknowns.  Complicated or Simple [Snowden] systems are well defined, but there is not necessarily a correspondence to the resultant Complexity [Sessions].  So one can have a Complicated [Snowden] System with moderate to low complexity [Sessions], and have a Simple [Snowden] System with very high complexity [Sessions].

One approach to dealing with this is to use Cynfin/Snowden when talking about “problems” (something to be addressed) and Sessions when talking about “solutions” (the concrete resulting system).  As one starts to analyze a problem, there are sure to be “unknown unknowns”.  By the time a system has been “completed” everything about the system (at least for a point in time) is defined – and one can make the appropriate measurements and calculations necessary to evaluate the complexity.

    This also marks the last time David Duchovny was a regular on the show which forces me to put it on the list. When Samantha is involved, Mulder immediately changes. He can be easy going all the time, but once Samantha’s abduction comes into play, he is reckless and loses perspective. That’s exactly what happens in “Paper Hearts.” Mulder is manipulated into believing that a serial killer had abducted her instead of aliens. In the end, it wasn’t true and no new information was discovered, but it’s all about the process of getting to that conclusion, and the episode hit it out of the park. Mulder goes off to the Bermuda Triangle looking for a ship, and instead travels back to 1939 where Nazis have taken over. The catch is that some of the people he meets look exactly like people he knows back home. Maybe it was a hallucination and never really happened, but that’s not the point; the episode was a blast. “Trust No One.” This simple phrase became the mantra of our heroes with the death of Deep Throat.

This is why the currency often “moves” against the volume, news and the common sense. The charts on April 1, 2005 perfectly illustrate these tendencies. I sincerely hope that everybody sees that these graphs do make exceptions but they don’t confirm the rules of Forex. This is why the techniques of working at Forex, written by those classicists who dealt with the spontaneous market, will more and more diverge from the currency real (true) quotations. It is necessary to mention that at the spontaneous market the direction of the trend and its intensity coincide with the trading volume. At present the base of Forex market is changed in its essence. Now it’s being driven by INTEREST of a certain grouping but not by spontaneous forces. This grouping prescribes the currency quotations to us at the market. I think he has been the highlight of the season which is great since it seems everyone except for me is totally ecstatic about the show and the season. The relationship between Trinity and Christine became more clear. She was never in league with him, but saw he in the bathtub as a child, and finally put together the pieces. Maybe being a serial killer is genetic, because she shot Lundy and Deb without consulting Trinity. It’s possible that seeing her father kill someone at a young age was similar trauma to the one he suffered as a child leading to her being able to shoot someone cold blood. It will be interesting to see how far gone Christine is an whether the police will be able to extract information out of her. Masuka is having a hard time deciding what to do. He knows what he saw was wrong and Dexter should know, but is having a hard time getting it out of his mouth. The preferable choice would be if the images were erased from his mind, but since that can’t happen, he’ll have to make a decision sooner or later. Chernobyl 6 Episode.
