"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."

- Robert B. Laughlin

"Take a tour through any hospital and look at any piece of equipment with an on/off switch that is brought into the diagnosing the human condition. That machine is based on principles of physics discovered by a physicist and built by an engineer."

- Neil de Grasse Tyson, Astrophysicist
