This makes perfect sense to me. You see, my husband is just an engineer.
I, however, am a *designer*. :->
Ob relevant comment: The problem with the term engineering is that it
conveys a sense of controlling Victorian-style mechanical systems. Instead
of evolution dying out, I think that evolutionary characteristics are
becoming apparent in many other aspects of our world. Maybe genetic
evolution has been short-circuited by our control over our environment, but
memetic evolution has taken over. I think Anders is right, a general
theory of complexity would be a tremendous achievement.
