Chaos

We assume that we live in a world where order reigns, our entire society struggles to have laws, and rules, we as human beings think that we are order creatures and the same everything that surrounds us must be ordered-from weather and ecosystems to the entire universe. I will prove here that is not true and more, I will prove that”As above so below” we are chaos.

Everything started with the chaos theory and the study of nonlinear dynamics. From the scientific point of view, chaos has a different meaning than our day to day context and refers to ”an apparent lack of order in a system that nevertheless obeys particular laws or rules”.”The two main components of chaos theory are the ideas that systems – no matter how complex they may be – rely upon an underlying order, and that very simple or small systems and events can cause very complex behaviors or events. This latter idea is known as sensitive dependence on initial conditions, a circumstance discovered by Edward Lorenz (who is generally credited as the first experimenter in the area of chaos) in the early 1960s. ”(quotes from Computing fundamentals glossary).

Let’s take for example society- there are thousands of countries, all with laws and social systems and all of them try to set rules for each individual in order for each to find a place suitable for him/her. Individuals that do not sustain the order are annihilated or isolated- at least this is what we see from the outside. From the inside there are different rules depending on the country and culture, depending on the social status and the family¬† and historical period we talk about,and sometimes those different sets of laws/rules will lead to conflicts between the main structures. So we see it’s not a very clear order in here but more of¬† dynamic systems-continually changing system.

” An important aspect of the chaos theory is the butterfly effect. This effect is simply a metaphor that encapsulates the concept of sensitive dependence on initial conditions, namely that small differences of a dynamical system may produce large variations in the long term behavior of the system. Although this may appear to be an esoteric unusual behaviors, it can be proven easily. Let’s say a ball is placed at the crest of a hill. It might roll into any several valleys depending on slight differences in initial position.”(www.universetoday.com).Although chaotic systems obey certain rules that can be described by mathematical equations, chaos theory shows the difficulty of predicting their long-range behavior. We all know situations when some small and ignored¬† individual changed entire systems and in the same way one small event changed the fate of history.
One of the most successful application of chaos theory has been in ecology, where dynamical systems have been used to show how population growth under density dependence can lead to chaotic dynamics.

Now let’s go to magick and see hundreds of systems and different laws, all made up by humans from different dogmas or societies. One that will adopt the chaos into their practice must also deconstruct belief and any system. The magickian must be willing to get beyond the boundaries of himself even. This has nothing to do with the communion with a Goddess or a Demon but with magick energy that works, no matter what system (even if the majority of kaotes will say that they are into Black Magick). This might seem disturbing for those that are used to a magick system and even threatening-due to the fact that kaotes do not follow any rule. In fact when it first appeared, this new magick wave was seen by the ”order” magickians as a sort of magick terrorists that might attack the existent magick morals and declare a war to anyone. Not that would be a bad thing…
