Chaotic Logic p.6
"The ideas of this book proceed from an alternative point of view: that complex, self-organizing systems, while unpredictable on the level of detail, "
.. what passes as detail .. within it hidden .. easily overlooked .. what makes chaos exciting .. the minutiae .. the insignificant .. the tiny .. the small .. needles and tacks in haystacks .. that once they are triggered ..removed from the foreshadows .. poked and embellished ..
(I feel like Pythia .. the soothsayer .. a seemingly or apparently incoherent ramble .. while in some sort of trance)
.. details turn everything upside-down .. the potential .. out of .. what is taken as details .. try and test systems .. annihilate ..and devastate .. only to emerge as the new ..novel state of the system .. under a new regime of attributes .. peace and tranquillity ..afforded .. the system has been rocked to its foundations .. the system emerged triumphant .. the shaky foundations .. have outlived their usefulness .. replaced with more trusted, rock-solid support .. to last longer .. embedded as they are .. in hardy .. out of bouts of trying and testing .. proving their worthiness ..
"... are interestingly predictable on the level of structure. This what differentiates them from simple dynamical systems that are almost entirely unpredictable on the level of structure as well as the level of detail.
.. predictable .. straight out of what has been suggested by the author .. a couple of paragraphs before..
"All these systems have one novel property in common: whatever state one starts the system in at "time zero," the odds are that before long the system will converge on a certain region of state space called the "attractor". The states of the system will then fluctuate around the "attractor" region forever, apparently at random. This is "chaos," a remarkable, intriguing phenomenon -- and a phenomenon which, on the surface at least, appears to have little to do with complex, self-organizing systems."
