Forbes references QCT and BDT. It's complicated
If it is true, as Martin Heidegger argued, that we don’t build technology as much as we uncover it, then the same must be true of complexity. It arises out of our pursuit of things we want, such as greater power over our environment and more functionality out of the technology and institutions that we invent. We build according to how we dwell. The story of technology is one of the continuous embedding of simple truths. We lived for two millennia under the false promises of Euclidean geometry and Aristotelian logic.
Geometry and logic are false? At least we still have the promise of Ptolemaic geocentrism and Aristotelian motion.
