I really like the last sentence.

These are my notes on complexity from reading The Mythical Man Month:

Software entities are more complex for their size than perhaps any other human constuct, because no two parts are alike. If they are, we make them into one.

The complexity of software is an essential property. Hence descriptions of a software entity that abstract away its complexity often abstract away its essence.
