I disagree. I've written many massively-multithreaded agent-based
systems. For instance, the airspace simulator I wrote ran about
20,000 agents, each running on its own virtual thread, and each
capable of interfering with any other agent.
Also, much complex systems work has been done using computer
simulations! If those simulations aren't complex, then...
