“It has been said that something as small as the flutter of a butterfly’s wing can ultimately cause a typhoon half way around the world.” ~Chaos Theory
Chaos theory is a based on unpredictability, it is a concept that will come across a few paradoxes and which is very closely related to “The Butterfly Effect,” just as the butterfly effect is closely related “Cause and Effect.” Cause and effect serves to understand the past and the present, the butterfly effect serves to understand the future effect we have from the present, and the Chaos Theory serves to understand the infinite possibilities of our future just as the atomic science of quantum physics has shown the infinite possibilities of reality and is partially described in the blog post “Ethereal Substance“, “Illusion and Reality” and “The Observer Effect.” Having understood these previous blogs, this is the first paradoxical question: is our future really unpredictable? Life may seem as unpredictable due to its infinite possibilities, which can change at any given moment with the human ingredient of choice.
“Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwards.” ~Soren Kierkegaard
The most perfect thing in the universe is imperfection. If everything was perfect, nothing would change, and with imperfection comes chaos. Chaos is simply the process during change or a shift, just as we are in the process of a global shift in consciousness. Our chaotic world is evidence of that, and as shown in the video of cymatics in the blog post “Vibration II,” our collective destiny is the result of our collective choices, thoughts and actions no matter how insignificant they might seem to be. “The Butterfly Effect” has shown that a very small and insignificant influence can change and alter our world forever.
“Remember upon the conduct of each depends the fate of all.” ~Alexander the Great
It is the misconception that “Cause and Effect” is a linear series of events, because we remember the past and see the series of events as what seem to be linear. However, cause and effect, the butterfly effect and chaos theory are not linear, rather, they are chaotic and seemingly random. They are the result of infinite and multiple potential. Chaos theory is what makes prophecy so difficult to fulfill or understand because we are a living and creating prophecy. Chaos is the result of a higher order not yet completely understood. If it were not for the laws of nature and order, our universe would be a chaos instead of a cosmos, although shortly after ‘the big bang,’ our universe was a chaos. However, the universe is now order and it is cyclical in nature. With cyclical patterns comes predictability but the laws of nature and our universe remain unpredictable in the process of change and infinite possibilities of chaos. Consequently when we have done all that we’ve consciously could in an event or circumstance and still receive in our lives what is perceived as chaos or disorder, understand that it is the result of a higher order beyond our own freewill. I’ve come to recognize this higher order of chaos as destiny, which seems like a paradox within itself between destiny and freewill, because we made a choice to go with the flow of destiny, which I will later explain. When faced with this chaos we must go with the flow and accept what comes our way and make decisions as they come, we must not resist chaos because what we resist persist, and we resist by conflict instead of acceptance and eventually what will persist is more disorder. Balance of chaos comes when we learn to balance between destiny and freewill, of knowing when to act and when to allow. If we react to chaos we are being pushed by chaos and if you react you’re already late! Instead of responding to chaos with a choice in the moment, also not making a choice is a choice within itself. Chaos and order are opposites of the same thing as destiny and freewill seem to be separate from each other like black and white in “Duality” but need to coexist for the purpose of all creation. Freewill exist with and within destiny just as order exist with and within chaos and vice versa, from the microcosm to the macrocosm.
“Chaos was the law of nature, order was the dream of man.” ~Henry Brooks Adams
“Man is condemned to be free, because once thrown into the world he is responsible for everything he does.” ~Jean-Paul Sartre
