Much like physics, chaos theory provides a foundation for the study of all other scientific disciplines. It is acually a tool box of methods for incorporating nonlinear dynamics into the study of science. For many people, the work in chaos represents the reunification of the sciences.
In mathematics, the use of strange attractors, fractals, and cellular automata, and other nonlinear, graphical models are used for studying data that was previously thought of as random.
In biology, chaos is used in the identification of new evolutionary processes leading to understanding the genetic algorithim, artificial life simulations, better understanding of learning processes in systems including the brain, and studies of such previously unresearchable areas as consciousness and the mind.
Darwin's work also appears in direct conflict with Newton's because it changes our understanding of the nature of time, demonstrating that some time is not reversible.
Prigogine explains that the concept of entropy is actually the physicists application of the concept of evolution to physical systems.
The greater the entropy of a system, the more highly evolved the system is. Chaos theory is also having a major impact on quantum physics and attempts to reconcile the chaos of quantum physics with the predictability of Newton's universe.
The push for such unification cam from Einstein. Chaos theory is causing most quantum physicists to accept what Einstein rejected, that God probably did play dice with the universe.
Chaos theory is already affecting the critical aspects of our lives. It greatly impacts all sciences. For example, it is answering previously unsolvable problems in quantum mechanics and cosmology. The understanding of heart arrhthmias and brain function has been revolutionized by chaos research. There have been games and toys developed from chaos research, such as the SimAnt, SimLife, SimCity, etc. series of computer games. Fractal mathematics are critiical to improved information compression and encryption schemese needed for computer networking and telecommunications.
K's Chaos gave them the story to be so, as you say juicy, it would have been the talk of your successful endevor. When a person knows they are being bated and play the fall guy so trackers plan can be plotted by the trackie; it gave them chaos enough to talk about it. Her question is- Was it really her fault or their desire to stalk her life and take from her that which was her story and hers alone to tell when she was ready? She chose not to want people to know her gift! People use what they do not understand to an advandage of some thing they want and may truly not deserve to know.
