Yes, they become more complicated every now and then.

It sometimes reminds me of Real Life viruses : They develop techniques to get avoided by the human anti-virus system, so to say. The T-cells and such.

Over time both get into a race , with both developing more and more complicated means of warfare.

Sometimes, the viruses or even parasites win. And then, the body comes to live with them, because they are no more able to disable the "invader", only to heal the symptoms.

Examples of such rather successful viruses is the Malria, and perhaps even the Toxoplasmosis : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toxoplasmosis
Especially this here : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toxopla…tric_disorders
And this : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toxopla…t_Developments
It is a gruesome thought to think that these parasites are perhaps even able to steer us humans !

I believe that a similar thing might happen with crime ( = RL viruses, computer viruses, spammers) and human society, too.
Maybe this race is already on, since humanoty arose.

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
