You're on to something I'm starting to see this. Via my physics thread. everything makes sense. Feels like i'm the one eyed guy in the land of the blind.I've had two of my brothers die, one at 7 weeks of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, the other at 36 years old of colon cancer (leaving behind a beautiful wife and two little boys), I don't have contact with my mother, my father passed away a few years ago, and my two sisters, their kids, etc. I don't have contact with. It's just my wife, and I rarely have contact with my own children.
So, back to my my statements above:
"Now, if we are talking about behaviors of humans or animals, again, it seems like chaos and randomness, only because we generally have a poor understanding of what is going on inside of our brain, let alone another's. However, if we had some ability to fully understand the brain and monitor all the activity in ourselves and others, we could have some high predictability of behaviors and interactions. We simply don't have that ability right now."
We have a forum full of people, you, me, everyone here, that have a difficult time understanding ourselves and the people around us. It's not chaos and randomness, things happen for a reason. You can put blame on the autism, or your past childhood traumas, your health, your stress, something you said, so on and so forth,...and then add all of the other person's "baggage",...but likely, it was many "forces" at play that contributed to that seemingly "unique" situation or result. If you were to turn back the clock and relive those moments, knowing what you know now, the future may be different, but you still couldn't predict what that future may be or the correct pathway to achieve the future you wanted. However, it is not chaos and randomness.
If you have some understanding of parallel universes, and how a different action, sometime in the past, can dramatically change the outcome of the future, it really makes you think. Today is Groundhog Day in the US, a silly day in and of itself, but there is an old comedy movie called "Groundhog Day" in which the main character wakes up to the same day, every day, and he finally learns through trial and error how to take a crappy day and turn it into a great day by changing little things he does. Another movie, "The Butterfly Effect", takes on these same concepts of how one seemingly minor, benign action can have profound effects in the future.
