 John L. Casti 
“Resilience, timing, adaptation  these are the three pillars upon which the emergent properties of interacting systems rest. When the systems are the economy and the environment, understanding of the relationships among these concepts is crucial. This volume does a better job of explaining how to manage both money and nature to ensure humanity's longterm future than any other work I know of. Read and reflect.”
 John L. Casti 
“Reality is a wave function traveling both backward and forward in time.”
