Is Chaos So Chaotic?
Alpin McGregor, freeelance, United Kingdom, Member
The French mathematician Poincarre demonstrated Chaos Theory by plotting the orbit of the Earth round the Sun. He imagined a huge card at right angles to the Earth's orbit and calculated the holes punched in the card by the orbiting Earth (a bit like a target in rifle shooting) it was not possible to predict where the Earth would puncture the card. This is an example of Chaos Theory. However, the Earth still orbits around the Sun within set limits. Sometimes it is nearer the Sun other times it is further away, but where it will end up cannot be determined because of chaos yet there are limits beyond which the Earth will not stray in its orbit of the Sun. So there is some order in chaos....Register
