Question of the Day #13: Design Inference

What methodology does one use to infer design, and how does one differentiate something that is designed from something that is merely complex?

Things are designed to serve a specific purpose. Usually the rule is: as simple as possible, but not too simple.

Complexity is a relative term concerning the number of interrelated subparts/processes of a design.

Saying something is complex implies that it could be done simpler, while the objective would still be reached. So complexity is related to a goal and to competing objects or designed objects.

An object cannot have a goal for another object that has no goal. An object can only serve a goal for a planned action. If an object has no goal the term complexity does not apply.

So what you're saying is that the existence of complexity both implies an ID paradigm and defeats it ?

depends on how you define "design".
