Sean, Complex systems are all around us, that are a compilation of patch work and apparently the have been maintained and made to work. So the generalization that complex system can not be made work, devalues the effort that goes into that effort. With the same logic, I would not place any value to the following statement: Not all simple systems can be expanded to complex and become functional systems.

Fair enough, but unless you can start out simple you will never reach complex.

I would like to comment on quote no 7 about complex systems. What I would say is " Think Complex but start with simple". Unless you think complex you cannot create something beyound your imagination.
