It is the everlasting and unchanging rule of this world that everything is created by a series of causes and conditions and everything disap pears by the same ntle; everything changes, nothing remains constant. 17ze Teaching of Buddha, Bukkyo Dendo Kyokai, Tokyo 1966, p. 82 Our world is dynamic, but the human mind is ill-equipped for comprehending, assessing, and predicting dynamic processes. We often fail to understand and anticipate the dynamics of systems until it is too late-until previously available options have disappeared and we are trapped on a road to disaster. The dynamics of population growth, ozone depletion, carbon dioxide accumulation in the atmos phere, environmental deterioration, AIDS, civil wars, forest die-back, recession, unemployment, crime etc. have caught us largely unprepared, and have often led to totally inadequate responses. It is possible to construct computer simulation models of dynamic processes and systems, and it is possible to use these models for gaining a better understanding of a system and its dynamics, and of the options available for coping with the ensuing problems. However, as in any other discipline, the process of modeling and simulation requires a certain amount of knowledge and skills: about systems and systems analysis, and about the approaches and tools available for modeling and simulation."
