Abstract.  From the emergence of intelligence in natural systems to the rise of human institutions, complexity is a pervasive feature of our universe, our society, and our biological selves. The Santa Fe Institute presents a panel discussion on the nature of complexity, how complex life might have emerged, how the first civilizations arose, and the hidden laws that seem to underlie both biological systems and human social systems
