Chaos

With complexity, interconnection, and change comes chaos (Lorentz*) A mathematical theory describing systems that are very sensitive to the way they are originally set up; small discrepancies in the initial conditions will lead to completely different outcomes when the system has been in operation for a while. For example, the motion of a pendulum when its point of suspension undergoes forced oscillation will form a particular pattern as it swings. Started from a slightly different position, it can form a completely distinctive pattern, which could not have been predicted by studying the first one. The weather is a partly chaotic system, which means that even with perfectly accurate forecasting techniques, there will always be a limit to the length of time ahead that a useful forecast can be made. *Edward Lorenz elegantly demonstrated, notwithstanding the simplest system embodying these characteristics has a distinct limit to its predictability because any error, however, small, in any component grows in magnitude with time and effects a chain of consequent changes in other components of the system. Edward Lorenz published his findings on the limitations of the predictability of the atmosphere, which in turn led to his pioneering work on deterministic chaos.

I always try to be positive & have great energy to share. I try hard not to be affected by negative energy from others. I think that life is to short and that I do not have time to be grumpy, its only me that suffers from it and people around me. I believe that the whole universe is inter-connected, always in change and not everlasting. All people needs to develop positive karma, this will help us in the future. We all need to take care of this planet as we are only borrowing for a short time. So let us pass it on in a better condition than when we borrowed it. Remember next time we come around we might be able to borrow it again. I belive strongly that in a time like this we need strong visionary people that view the world as one. Enjoy
