  25. 25. A complex system is "a measurement of the number of elements within our system,...the degree of connectivity within a system,...when elements become capable of adapting their behavior over time can become increasingly complex,...and it is also a measure of the degree of diversity between elements within a system" (Complexity Learning, 2014). cc: Stuck in Customs - https://www.flickr.com/photos/95572727@N00
