Let's try and bring a little order here =]


Traditional Definition: A state of utter confusion or disorder; a total lack of organization or order.


Thinking about Chaos probably brings up a lot of interesting sensory images in your mind. It might range from a ton of papers strewn about to perhaps even an atom bomb explosion. While this may seem like a wide spectrum of things to consider, that in essence is what chaos is. The unending randomization of numbers is true chaos. Some prefer to rename chaos for themselves using such words as luck and fate. What is luck? It's when the probability of numbers(chaos) works in your favor for any sort of benefit you were looking to receive. What is fate? Some resign themselves to this abstract concept of thought that travels along the lines of "i cannot prevent this fate from befalling me fore it is set in stone." Almost the exact opposite of what luck stands for. Saying how the probability hasn't worked in your favor and is conspiring against you even. See how these things can be twisted and take away from the true meaning of chaos, which is just directly related to unpredictability and disorder. As much as i love quoting others and using others definitions of chaos, let me show you what i think of it.


I'm gonna break away from the norm and give my straight definition of what chaos is to me. I have a sort of love affair with chaos. It loves to give and take. Make life more interesting, challenging, and even more dangerous. I find solace in chaos, without disorder and perhaps a seam somewhere where it shouldn't, i don't think things would seem right to me. I like to be all over the place, to feel confused sometimes because that is the path of learning and understanding. Allowing you to think outside the box and try to come up with what could happen while in actuality you might not be far off. You'll never know until it happens, because that is Chaos. Not a simple concept that allows for everyone to grasp its intangible sides. Giving very little in the way of letting things go as planned. An easier way to say this for everyone is that....when someone is struck by lightning, that is the chaos factor. Such a small percent that inevitably comes into play to mix things up. Such a low chance for it to happen that if you saw the number on paper, you'd think no one in the history of time would've been struck. But thats not the case at all. Dozens of people are struck by lightning each year, the numbers are there working together to produce something random and out of the blue.(bad pun yay!)


While the video itself doesn't have too much to do with the lyrics, the song is about the lead singer's inner chaos hes experienced. Not having control and not knowing what happened after a long night.

Scientific and Explanatory Section:

A slice of wikipedia knowledge

Chaos is the complexity of causality or the relationship between events. This means that any 'seemingly' insignificant event in the universe has the potential to trigger a chain reaction that will change the whole system. A well known saying in connection with this issue is "A butterfly flapping its wings in one part of the world can cause a hurricane on the other side of the earth." This is also known as the Butterfly Effect.

Examples of usages:

1)The place was in utter chaos after the burglary.

2)The desk was a chaotic mess of papers and unopened letters.

Scientific View:

In mathematics and physics, chaos theory describes the behavior of certain nonlinear dynamical systems that may exhibit dynamics that are highly sensitive to initial conditions (popularly referred to as the butterfly effect). As a result of this sensitivity, which manifests itself as an exponential growth of perturbations in the initial conditions, the behavior of chaotic systems appears to be random. This happens even though these systems are deterministic, meaning that their future dynamics are fully defined by their initial conditions, with no random elements involved. This behavior is known as deterministic chaos, or simply chaos.
