Leif, I really like those - they seem very thoughtful. Question: what do you mean by reimburse?

Thank you Jilly.

Maybe it's a point of pride on my part but I'd like to reimburse people who have helped me a lot. When I was young and going through rough family times I had friends who were sympathetic and let me stay at their place. Especially after hitting a time in my life where decency was in short supply - I really remember the people who have helped me in the past nowadays. I'd rather show them my appreciation instead of just tell them.

I daresay I could use some more order too. Living a day in my life is like wrestling with chaos unbound lol.

Wrestling with chaos - I like that. Maybe it is like wrestling with alligators. I just learned how to actually do that. You have to get onto their back and hold their mouth shut. Apparently they have great mouth closing muscles but weak opening ones.

Anyway, maybe chaos is like that too. I bet I could come up with something really pithy with this if I tried.

Thanks Jilly. I believe it would be like wrestling with many alligators simultaneously. I've never tried it but I have learned the same as you. Biologically it makes sense... Who would try holding their jaws closed up until we figured it out?

On order - I'm finding that attempting to force pieces to fit into it doesn't work out very well for me. Working with the chaos tends to cause it to be more helpful. Sort of like going with the flow of it, only you cause your own paths within. Call it working alongside the flow of things smile

Actually, I think you are totally right about working WITH chaos; it can't be forced.

And maybe that is also like holding the alligator's mouth shut - if you can't run, or hide, you can still approach. Which is what Han Solo did in Empire when he attached the Falcon to the Star Destroyer and then floated away with the garbage.

Alongside, not with wink Chaotic events can only force us to the point where we don't anticipate chaos. Example - potential rush hour traffic when going to an appointment. We don't know what it'll be like so affording some extra time for the unknown factor.

I daresay working with chaos would just further unravel whatever order we believe we are able to impose. Nice Star Wars reference. I'd see working alongside as holding the alligator's mouth shut and trying to get it to move toward a tree or something similar. In that case, I'm sure the predator would have a lot more patience than the prey lol. Pinned doesn't mean defeated.

To all ,
Have you ever read about the law of Chaos.

Chaos exists to prevent things to be perfect.

Perfection would lead to stagnation. Dynamism exists to prevent this. Randomness is this dynamic influence.

I wasn't aware there was a law, no. I've got a friend or two who like to talk about chaos theory and that's what I've gleaned from them. Is this correct or would you amend it, Loong Dragon?

To Leif,
It is not a theory.Isaw a few years ago ,on t.v. the prooving of the necessity of chaos.As you say perfection would lead to stagnation and surely to the end.
Nothing is perfect
and everything is perfect.
