2015 Edge of Chaos

Sculpture

 

Is the quality in Physical-Biological-Sociologisal systems which makes them unpredictable. Sometimes this effect is referred to as the butterfly effect-A butterfly in China flaps its wings, as a result in America a tornado starts roaming. On the other hand major perturbations may happen to a chaotic system and nothing comes of it. This lack of proportionality between the “cause” and the “caused“  is called “Chaos”.

 

The edge of Chaos

Physical systems are not always chaotic, they are often very well ordered. However life cannot persist in a well ordered crystallized environment. On the other hand in a disordered ,  unpredictable chaotic world also cannot have life. Therefore the only place that I can live is that tiny space on the edge of chaos. A living thing some times gets drawn towards chaos and times towards order, both are detrimental to him, so he hurries back to the tiny space at the edge of chaos where he can survive.
