The first question that comes up to my mind is: ‘How does Chaos theory apply to our daily life?’
The trajectory that happens on a single day may never repeat itself but then life seems self-same routine. Here is the oxymoron to the daily planner where you are sure that you will definitely wake up as usual and do a list of daily tasks in cyclic repetition without faltering in your progress of the day.
Because you have conversation like
Person A to Person B: “So Wassup?”
Person B: “Oh! The self-shame-the-same”
It is almost saying that on the pool table, the scattering of balls would result in perfect replication. Meaning to say, that every time you push the cue ball, it is going to hits other balls and all will move in the same spread direction all the time. This a Physicist says quantitatively impossible to achieve, as showed in this video on Chaos and Butterfly Effect is interesting to watch.
The pendulum and pool table balls are erratic and random. Let us step back a little and simplify the Chaos theory
Matthew Murchie’s take on the Chaos Theory is simple enough to understand and I feel one never is accurate in their precise starting point to make sure to reach the exact ending point.
So, let say this essay that I started was to describe the Chaos Theory with emphasis on Butterfly Effect, I am not sure where it will end. At the end of the session of viewing, listening and understanding for an inference, I might discover that nothing is randomness or everything is a structured randomness whose logic is well misplaced.
Uncertainty and Chaos Theory in Tamizh language was another source to understand this concept from the point of my mother-tongue. I am still grappling with the basic understanding and personal point of view I am drawing as I watched this video.
But I found another fellow Tamizhian Madan Gowri explore the concept with an actual historical reference. Though it was a little stretched with details of event that history usually don’t record and are facts that get embedded to the stone-age relics of the mind.
What I really found fascinating was the Ted Talk on Chaos Theory and Lemmings suicidal attempt explained with Mathematic computation and arriving at a numerical value. I felt this was such a situation that will not confirm to theory. But it was interesting to explore what happens to the world on the other side if these lemmings commit such mass suicide. It is almost the environmental stress that acts on the lemmings is definitely worth studying about.
So, I find the Chaos Theory alongside Butterfly Effect is an excellent tipper of the balance and the scales swing rather erratically to a rhythm of its own.
