Chaos Theory Explained "Traditionally, scientists have looked for the simplest view of the world around us. Now, mathematics and computer abilities have generated a concept which helps researchers to understand the intricacies of nature. The theory of insanity touches all disciplines." -Ian Percival, The Essence of Chaos Part I: The Basics of Chaos. Watch a leaf stream down stream; watch its behavior within the water Perhaps it will sit on the outside, gently twirling along with the current, dancing round eddies, marginally spinning, and all of a sudden, it warms right to a rock or gets squeezed beneath the water with a little whirlpool. After doing this enough times you may realize it's nearly impossible to accurately forecast a leaf's travel downstream, as the slightest shift in its position may result in a severe deviation from it's initial path. A little change in 1 variable can have a disproportional, even devastating, impact on other variables; this is the touch of insanity. By no means, however, is that the extent. Researchers used to, until the chaos concept, think in the concept of reductionism, many still do. Reductionism imagines character as equally capable of being assembled and disassembled. Reductionists believe that when everything is broken up into a worldwide theory will become obvious that will explain everything. Reductionism indicated the rather simple view of insanity evident in Laplace's dream of an international formulation: Chaos was merely sophistication so good that in practice scientists could not monitor it, but in theory they might one day be in a position to. If that day arrived there wouldn't be any chaos, what in existence would be perfectly predictable, and no openings, the world would be securely mut...
