"I think the next [21st] century will be the century of complexity."

- Stephen W. Hawking

"The central task of theoretical physics in our time is no longer to write down the ultimate equations but rather to catalogue and understand emergent behavior [...]. We call this physics of the next century the study of complex adaptive matter."
