Quotation on linear minds in a non-linear world

Updated: Jul 25, 2021

Linear relationships are easy to think about..... Nonlinear systems generally cannot be solved and cannot be added together... Nonlinearity means that the act of playing the game has a way of changing the rules... That twisted change-ability makes nonlinearity hard to calculate, but it also creates rich kinds of behaviour that never occur in linear systems. - James Gleick, Chaos: Making a New Science (taken from 'Thinking in Systems' by Donella H Meadows)
