A two-part, Thinking Allowed video. Nobel laureate Murray Gell-Mann addresses the relationship between the world of everyday experience and the mysterious world of sub-atomic particles.

Regarding complexity, he says that random systems which are difficult to describe may be no more complex than ones which are completely orderly. Murray Gell-Mann, Ph.D., received the Nobel Prize for theoretical work in physics. He is professor emeritus at California Institute of Technology and author of The Quark and the Jaguar.
