Chaos gets a bad rap. Few people realize that without the dynamics of chaos, order would not exist. In fact, nothing would exist. Without chaos there would be no creation, no structure and no existence. After all, order is merely the repetition of patterns; chaos is the process that establishes those patterns. Without this creative self-organizing force, the universe would be devoid of biological life, the birth of stars and galaxies, and the singularity of matter and energy — everything we have come to know.
In Defense of Chaos examines why chaology provides a slew of scientific evidence that open-ended, adaptable and evolving systems work far better than closed-ended, inflexible ones. Not only do dynamic systems work better, but they foster self-determination, social harmony and a choice-driven society. The nature of the physical world favors the freedom for people to self-organize and self-govern without the interference of external command and control structures.
With the help of Quantum Mechanics and the Uncertainty Principle, chaos theory proves that the universe is not based on the old Newtonian physics of order and precision, but rather on probability and uncertainty. Events often arise by chance, with no more reliability than a pinball machine. The future leaves no footprints. The likelihood that the sun will come up each morning is just that – a high probability, not a certainty.
This is an important point to consider, because the denizens of the political deep end put their faith behind linear, deterministic structures that don’t allow for spontaneous order, decentralization or free choice by individual agents. Political linearists and control freaks not only fail to think outside the box; they would have us ban the box. Most political systems are inherently top-down vertical systems, predatory by nature, and are geared to suffocate any creativity within their sphere of influence.
In Defense of Chaos takes the reader far down the rabbit hole where few are willing to explore, pitting the “unstructured order” of chaos against the “structured order” of linear-based politics. The book not only exposes a new way of thinking, but shows why chaos theory and complexity science will revolutionize the social, political and economic structures of the world.
