Maybe he's our alter ego

Maybe he's Ozzy Ozbourne's alter ego...

Prehaps Wocca is the voice of the inquisitive child in all of us?
Although it does not matter, I enjoy the banter;)

...your line has changed, confusion rings...

Okay, nix the Ozzy alter ego thing.

How about I fly to Kunming and check out who Wocca is and report in this forum?

Did you mention something previously about "human nature", Isadora? Some comments (NOT yours!) are rather transparent

Yes, and we're in agreement.

As does the Theory of Chaos...

=isadora]"...As does the Theory of Chaos..."

By this, I take it you are referring to the science of wholeness with respect to the understanding of the relationship between things which interact.

Let's ponder the example of a pile of stones. The pile is a system which interacts based upon how they were piled. If their initial piling is not in balance, the interaction results in their movement until they find a condition under which they are in balance. A group of stones which do not touch each other, however, are not a system because the interaction between is so minute, it can be considered non-existent.

Systems can, of course, be modelled. In other words, systems can be created which will theoretically replicate the behavior of the original system. Following the pile of stones example, one could take a second group of stones which are identical to the first group, pile them in exactly the same way as the first group, and predict that they will fall down into the exact same configuration as the first group.

Similiarly, a mathematical model, based upon Newton's law of gravity, could be used to predict how piles of same and different types will interact. Generally speaking, mathematical modelling is the key to modelling systems, although it is not the only way.

You've already hit the nail on the head, Isadora. Beyond confusion is simplicity. There's no illusion in this instance.
