What can you calculate the complexity of? I can’t figure out how to calculate the complexity of anything.
Yeah, somebody help me out, I wasn't expecting to get an actual answer!
I just wanted to join the banned!

Patrick is basically saying that complexity = length of word, and that Zach's program can't jump from a five letter word to a fifty letter word if there are no similar words intermediate in length between them.
The evolutionary answer to this is 'Well, duh'.
Of course, Patrick is wrong.
'aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa' is specified but not complex.
'qjcicnfkgzafnvuehhgosifhfga' is complex but not specified.
'All Science So Far!' is complex and specified.

EDIT: I mean, Patrick is wrong about the definition of complexity, not about evolving 50-letter words.
