Even though the so-called “complexity science” has been around for a few decades, it has failed to produce workable definitions and metrics of complexity. In fact, complexity still today is being seen as a series of phenomena of un-orchestrated self-organization (e.g. swarms of starlings), and emergence in which their complexity is never measured. In early 2005 the first Quantitative Complexity Theory (QCT) has been established by J. Marczyk. According to this theory, complexity is no longer seen as a process but as a new physical property of systems. Complexity, therefore, just like for example energy, is an attribute of every system. In nearly a decade, the QCT has found numerous applications is diverse fields. One of them is medicine.
Because modern science lacks a holistic perspective, favouring super-specialization, a patient is rarely seen and treated as multi-organ dynamic system of systems. Due to this cultural limitation and because of the overwhelming complexity of the human body, only on rare occasions is medical science quantitative.....
