Chaos theory

Chaos theory. In honor of Edward Lorenz, the father of Chaos Theory, thought I would share a little about what Chaos Theory is:

Chaos theory
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In mathematics and physics, chaos theory describes the behavior of certain nonlinear dynamical systems that may exhibit dynamics that are highly sensitive to initial conditions (popularly referred to as the butterfly effect). As a result of this sensitivity, which manifests itself as an exponential growth of perturbations in the initial conditions, the behavior of chaotic systems appears to be random. This happens even though these systems are deterministic, meaning that their future dynamics are fully defined by their initial conditions, with no random elements involved. This behavior is known as deterministic chaos, or simply chaos.end quote

Most of us were exposed to Chaos Theory through Jeff Goldblum's Charactor in Jurassic Park as a Chaos Theory professor and expert from UCSC during the movie. His water drop on the hand of the lady raptor expert gave most people their first introduction to chaos theory. Chaos theory applied to the weather is one of the factors that tends to make weather reports more accurate today when logarthymically plugged into computer models tied to satellite tracked movements of air and clouds and storms.

Edward Lorenz is also father of the "Butterfly Effect".

begin quote:
His studies led him to develop what became known as the "butterfly effect." The term stemmed from his 1972 academic paper "Predictability: Does the Flap of a Butterfly's Wings in Brazil Set off a Tornado in Texas?" end quote.

For example, it is my theory and belief that if the correct logarthym could be applied to a computer model general time lines involving human history in the future could be predicted to about an 80% accuracy. However, the weather and human reaction to it as well as variables like weather, crop growth, human behavior and population growth and demographics would have to be somehow plugged into this logarthymic model to make it even 80% accurate for up to 100 to 200 years. Beyond 100 to 200 years, however, the accuracy might decline at least 10% per century in accuracy. Also, as new variables of any sort were found they would need to be plugged into the computer model for continued relatively accurate results. Remember here, I'm speaking as someone who understands computers and software and as a lifelong psychic.

Also, in writing about this it is for the sustainability of the human race for millions of years and not for the enslavement of populations unborn. For to be enslaved like that, death would be preferable.
