Melting as disintegration

I never think of melting as disintegration...I think of it as, well, melting. But disintegration is definitely starting to occur in more structurally rigid organizations...churches, governments, other old and brittle institutions.

Complexity is the solvent. So we say we want to define complexity. It's hard. Complexity is interaction, but not of any one particular sort. It is the unexpected and unplanable (Bruce Goldstein). But it is also movement. Think airports. Complexity.
