AbstractIn this paper I speculate that a fundamental change that will cross threshold in the next 25 years will be about "liberation from linearity." I don't imply that linear systems will disappear or not remain important. I agree with Paul that linearity and the deviation from linearity are each defined with reference to the other. We are liberating ourselves from the tyranny of linearity, not from the utility of linearity.
