Many thanks, Joss.

I find that language is a challenge for me when explaining, talking about and reasoning about complexity. Complexity theory would benefit from more chunking and a more casual-sounding complementary terminology, imo.

I view complexity theory partially as a potential upgrade of common sense. But it’s difficult to package it for everyday conversations among a broader community. For instance, the emergent properties of my organization will never thrive in our coffee room, due to the rather bulky and intimidating terminology currently required.

What’s your perspective? Does complexity need a language adaptation before it can find its rightful and important place our society?
