What is chaos theory?


Examples of the "Chaos" theory:

Editor: I want you to see the extremely diverse coverage of "chaos" notions.  One I passed up was from a university in Italy.  It involved theories of logic and mathematics which were way beyond understanding.  This "chaos" theory is getting into all of the academic disciplines, and it is world wide.




Formally, chaos theory is defined as the study of complex nonlinear dynamic systems. Complex implies just that, nonlinear implies recursion and higher mathematical algorithms, and dynamic implies nonconstant and nonperiodic. Thus chaos theory is, very generally, the study of forever changing complex systems based on mathematical concepts of recursion, whether in the form of a recursive process or a set of differential equations modeling a physical system.

For a more rigorous definition of chaos theory, it is advisable to visit the much more scientific, much more broad-reaching chaos network definition, in their excellent HTML document, What Is Chaos Theory?, also available in a text only version.


Misconceptions about chaos theory

Chaos theory has received some attention, beginning with its popularity in movies such as Jurassic Park; public awareness of a science of chaos has been steadily increasing. However, as with any media covered item, many misconceptions have arisen concerning chaos theory.

The most commonly held misconception about chaos theory is that chaos theory is about disorder. Nothing could be further from the truth! Chaos theory is not about disorder! It does not disprove determinism or dictate that ordered systems are impossible; it does not invalidate experimental evidence or claim that modelling complex systems is useless. The "chaos" in chaos theory is order--not simply order, but the very ESSENCE of order.

It is true that chaos theory dictates that minor changes can cause huge fluctuations. But one of the central concepts of chaos theory is that while it is impossible to exactly predict the state of a system, it is generally quite possible, even easy, to model the overall behavior of a system. Thus, chaos theory lays emphasis not on the disorder of the system--the inherent unpredictability of a system--but on the order inherent in the system--the universal behavior of similar systems.





The assumption is that all random events, actions, and byproducts can be reduced to a theory, and this is claimed to be a science. Since science does not consist of random patterns, but predictable patters, the inventors of the Chaos Theory used the world "chaos" with the word "theory," and this is thought to give definition and order to chaotic events and products. Can you see how mad this is? Just because you give a cat the name Napoleon does not mean you have anything resembling a French ruler.

The world today is, pardon me now, chaotic with inventions of the mind which are total fictions. People run after these inventions and get a rush out of trying to mentally understand nonsense. This is a result of the Renaissance where man became the object of all things, and God was relegated to Calvin's Institutes and archaic. Free thinking took hold, and whatever you think is OK, even if no one else in the world has a clue what you are talking about.

1 Corinthians 14:40 Let all things be done decently and in order.

1 Corinthians 15:23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming.
24 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.

Christ is the ultimate object of order in the universe and in the world and its people. Why? Because he made everything that was made. So, if what Christ made appears to be chaotic, that is simply because your mind is chaotic and full of self-love and sin.

1 Corinthians 15:35 But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come?
36 Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die:
37 And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain:
38 But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body.
39 All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds.
40 There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another.
41 There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory.
42 So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:

So, some fools see the glory of God in people, creation, or behavior, and they reject God, so they find another definition. Chaos. Nothing it predictable according to them. This is the most wicked blasphemy against God-- to deny his creative order and say chaos created itself.
