is complex. Movement and multiplicity make it so. There is no way to define it, to study it, to abstract it. The only way we can know life is through experience. Complex systems can only be experienced in movement .
Complex systems, such as a city, have to be understood in their multidimensionality and in their dynamics. The more dimensions a space links together, the richest it becomes.
An airport links multiple realities together yet, paradoxically, it also concentrates and unifies them. It is the extension of a dominant reality. Colonization is the imposition of one way over any other.
