High causal density environments create difficult complexities for formulating appropriate goals and optimal policy. Experiment of lockdowns and other NPI's is textbook example. Discuss flawed lockdown and NPI theories, historical pandemic experiences and optimal strategy for future pandemics and other potential cataclysmic events.

Also discuss complexity in general and how to formulate appropriate goals, applied probability and flexible adaptation with near real-time data.
