"Next" says Kauffman "suppose that you come back  many years later, after the autocatalytic sets have been coevolving with one another and squirting strings at one another. The things that would still be around would be those things that had to evolve competitive interactions , food webs, mutualism, symbiosis. The things that you would see would be those that made the world they now mutually live in.  And that reminds us that we make the world we live in with one another. We're participants in the story as it unfolds. We aren't victims and we aren't outsiders. We are part of the universe, you and me, and the goldfish. We make our world with one another."

The universe is indeed characterized by diverse complex phenomena or structures which have informed system science; as it relates to machine, ecology, society and mind/brain. I think the world we live today would be better understood and modified by the complexity. More importantly, when humanity is able to harness the underlying potency of the complexity taking cognizance of butterfly effect.

The U.S. Foreign Service and the Importance of Professional Diplomacy, with Nicholas Kralev

Professional diplomats are made not born, says Nicholas Kralev of the Washington International Diplomatic Academy. It's not enough to be a people person: training is needed in specific skills. Sadly, many Americans don't realize how diplomats' successes or failures can affect their own security and prosperity. Even U.S. presidents often don't appreciate the Foreign Service. And under Trump, State Department professionals are leaving in droves.

Uncertainties About America's Global Reliability

Doubts about America's reliability as a guarantor and support of the liberal international order have been increasing since the 2016 election. What impact is this having on America's closest and most critical relationships?

European Futures in the Shadow of American Disengagement, with Andrew Michta

Europe is going through deep structural changes, says Andrew Michta of the George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies. He argues that it may become "a "Europe of clusters," where countries even within the EU will align themselves differently depending on their economic or security interests. In any case, these shifts are largely driven by internal factors such as the migration crisis, not by U.S. policy towards Europe.
