Maybe the most difficult thing in life is to let go: an insoluble problem with a family member, a dispute with your boss or failing to fulfill your dearest heart’s desire. It’s in our nature aiming to solve problems, to try to take control of situations, not to mention the hardest thing in life to accept that change doesn’t come the moment we want it to be there. Religious people can always rely on god’s will, yet in modern times where we have the technology to grow human organs, where according to theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, in due time we might travel into the future, we surely don’t want to accept that we can’t control faith?
Managers, politicians and other leaders want to envision every step they plan in charts and diagrams, in order to avoid any imaginable obstacle that might come in the way. Haven’t we gone too far in our obsessive need to control? Shouldn’t we give more room to the unexpected, to creative input or to the “natural course” of any given project or situation?
In other words shouldn't we stop with mainly "square" and linear thinking and start opening up for the unpredictable? The question is how unpredictable is the unpredictable?
Since the seventies scientist are able to understand more about the chaos theory because of the ever increasing speed of the calculation capacity of computers. It appears that within chaos, order is very present.
I am triggered by what a better understanding of the chaos theory can bring us in dealing with our daily lives. Fact is that our current way of linear thinking is reaching the end of it's "durability date".
May these BBC video's inspire you to see the immense insights, a better understanding of the chaos theory can bring us :
