Murray Gell-Mann: The study of complex adaptive systems cuts across archeology and linguistics, economics, physics, chemistry, math, immunology, and so on and so forth. It just goes on and on. Computer science. That’s the kind of thing we’re doing at the Santa Fe Institute, which I helped organize. It is devoted to giving people from virtually all fields the opportunity to work together to understand how complex adaptive systems work, and other complex systems as well, but principally complex adaptive systems. And we bring people from all of these disciplines — psychology, mathematics, chemistry, anthropology, and so on — together for meetings, and we allow them, or encourage them, to form research networks. It’s very exciting. I do a lot of the recruiting for the Santa Fe Institute, for the science board which supervises the program, and also for individual researchers. Every time I phone somebody in some distant field, some famous, busy person, I know that person is going to say, “Well, what you’re doing sounds interesting, but I’m already fully committed, but don’t call me, I’ll call you.” But instead, in almost every single case, the person says, “When can I come? I’ve been waiting for this! I’ve been waiting all my life for something like this!” It’s very interesting. It’s apparently a real felt need.
