"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.
