68,666. Creativity is the ability to introduce order into the randomness of nature. (Creativity & Order) Eric Hoffer
4,307. There is a strange and unexpected relationship between order and chaos. (Humanity & Order & Chaos & Mathematics) Professor Jim Al-Khalili, The Secret Life of Chaos, BBC 2011
80,704. Alan Turin was a remarkable man – one of the greatest mathematicians who ever lived. He discovered many of the fundamental ideas that underpin the modern computer. Also during the second world war he worked here at Bletchley Park. (Order & Chaos & Mathematics) ibid.
80,705. Chaos is one of the most overused words in English. But in science it has a very specific meaning. It says that a system that is completely described by mathematical equations is more than capable of being unpredictable without any outside interference whatever. (Order & Chaos & Mathematics) ibid.
80,706. The Butterfly Effect ... started turning up everywhere. (Order & Chaos & Mathematics) ibid.
80,707. Unpredictability was hardwired into every aspect of the world we live in. (Order & Chaos & Mathematics) ibid.
80,708. To be scared of chaos in pointless. It is woven into the basic laws of physics. (Order & Chaos & Mathematics) ibid.
51,568. The discovery of chaos was a real turning point in the history of science. As it tore down the Newtonian dream, scientists began to look more favourably at Turin and Bellusov’s work on spontaneous pattern formation. And perhaps more importantly as they did so they realised something truly astonishing: that there was a very deep and unexpected link – a truly cosmic connection – between Nature’s strange power to self organise and the chaotic consequences of the butterfly effect. (Nature & Order & Chaos & Mathematics) ibid.
51,569. They discovered that the natural world could be deeply, profoundly unpredictable. That the very same things that make it unpredictable also allow it to create pattern and structure. Order and chaos – seems the two are more deeply linked than we could have ever imagined. (Nature & Order & Chaos & Mathematics) ibid.
51,570. Underlying nearly all the shapes in the natural world is a mathematical principle known as Self Similarity. (Nature & Order & Chaos & Mathematics) ibid.
51,571. Turin’s patterns, Bellusov’s reactions and Mandelbrot’s fractals are all signposts pointing to a deep underlying natural principle. (Nature & Order & Chaos & Mathematics) ibid.
48,740. Another type of invisible order ... Something we call Information. (Energy & Physics & Information & Order) Order and Disorder with Jim Al-Khalili II: The Story of Information
48,746. The [Maxwell’s] demon seemed to suggest that you could put things back together without using any energy at all – just by using information you could create order. (Energy & Physics & Information & Order)
84,285. Order creates the nation, the culture, and order creates the state. Heinrich Himmler
84,286. But then are we in order when we are
Most out of order. William Shakespeare, The First Part of the Contention II Henry VI IV ii 188-189, Cade to others
84,287. Chaos often breeds life, when order breeds habit. Henry Brook Adams 1838-1918
84,288. Good order is the foundation of all good things. Edmund Burke
84,289. Let all things be done decently and in order. I Corinthians 14:40
119,557. Passengers, this is not a shoe, this is disorder. This is size ten chaos … We must all of us in this train of life remain in our allotted station.
