Thank you, Bojan, for sharing your paper. Your point about simplification is the same that Ben Ramalingam makes: it has to be done in a complex way. At the same time, we need to come up with tools that help us grasp and share our understanding of the complexity of a specific phenomenom to get a better sense whether and how it will change as a result of an intervention, and how we would measure the change. I found this TED Talk (http://www.ted.com/talks/eric_berlow_how_complexity_leads_to_simplicity ) very helpful in terms of visualizing a problem in ways that helps determine nodes that are instrumental and pathways of interrelationships that otherwise might not be visible. Obviously, the question would be whether an application like this could capture the questions of complexity that you mention in your article. Something to explore?
