Chaos and Order

Click image to enlarge
"There are only patterns, patterns on top of patterns, patterns that affect other patterns. Patterns hidden by patterns. Patterns within patterns.

If you watch close, history does nothing but repeat itself.

What we call chaos is just patterns we haven't recognized. What we call random is just patterns we can't decipher. what we can't understand we call nonsense. What we can't read we call gibberish."

- Chuck Palahniuk

That makes a lot of sense, I think. Or leastways I’ve thought along those lines for a while. But then, what happens to chaos? Is it a willful world or not.

Luther -- Interesting you mention that. I actually cut the two final lines from the quote. they are:

"There is no free will. There are no variables."

They seemed to provide too definitive of an answer. Our senses and our ability to comprehend extremely large or small scales are so limited it is hard to imagine what reality we are missing.
