This out-dated classical method has ended in the single-capacity g-theory, a "central processor," top-down, genetically decided linguistic view of intelligence that's without delay contradicted by way of empirical evidence of human and animal stories of intelligence.

This is the optimistic view. There are those, however, who take an extremely pessimistic viewpoint that life itself (of all forms, not just humanity) “screws up” the world’s works (Bennett 2009) and will continually defeat us in our aspirations to make the world a better place. In this chapter we delve into the science of complexity a little deeper, relate its principles to systems of people, and then discuss the impact on organizations. * Could it be that the vast majority of workers are content in just wanting a job within almost any organization and keeping their “head down,” letting those in authority dictate things, without feeling the need to be creative in changing their environment?

The body gives the mind constant up-to-date feedback about what is happening to it. With this feedback as a given the mind is then able to do other things as well. The Nature of Being Human ◾ 33 [This] idea is anchored in the following statements: (1) The human brain and the rest of the body constitute an indissociable organism, integrated by means of mutually interactive biochemical and neural regulatory circuits (including endocrine, immune, and autonomic neural components); (2) The organism interacts with the environment as an ensemble: the interaction is neither of the body alone nor of the brain alone; (3) The physiological operations that we call mind are derived from the structural and functional ensemble rather than from the brain alone: mental phenomena can be fully understood only in the context of organisms interacting in an environment.

It is a challenge of knowledge management to ferret out such tacit understandings so that they can be examined and modified, if necessary, for further progress. Appendix B is offered as a “sidebar” on the definitions of complexity and complex systems that emerged from efforts of the Systems Science Enabler Group (SSEG) of INCOSE from 2005 to 2008. SSEG essays on complexity, complex systems, and CSE are published in the January 2008 special issue of INCOSE Insight, focused on systems science (INSIGHT 2008).
