Flexible Roots

While we may think of stability and flexibility as opposites, Chaos theory suggests both are required for a system to continue. Research has found that chaos often overlays a higher order. In fact, chaos itself is found to have order within it. The simple formula of fractals, for example, is found throughout nature. Natural systems display random fluctuations arising from order. If something is too stable or if the randomness is suppressed, it becomes rigid. Tall buildings must be able to move with the wind and earth or they will collapse. Rigidity becomes inertia (tamas guna), then entropy (disorder) takes … Continue Reading…
