new Saga is out

new TTG: Walking Dead is out 

and here I am working… daydreaming about a time when I’ll be able to have fun with these two

Chaos Theory & The Beautiful Geometry of Double Pendulum

  • Chaos theory is a field of study in mathematics, with applications in several disciplines including meteorology, sociology, physics, engineering,etc…. In a scientific context, the word chaos has a slightly different meaning than it does in its general usage as a state of confusion, lacking any order. Chaos, with reference to chaos theory, refers to an apparent lack of order in a system that nevertheless obeys particular laws or rules.

Chaos theory studies the behavior of dynamical systems that are highly sensitive to initial conditions. These systems are deterministic, meaning that their future behavior is fully determined by their initial conditions, with no random elements involved. In other words, the deterministic nature of these systems does not make them predictable. This behavior is known as deterministic chaos, or simply chaos. The theory was summarized by Edward Lorenz as follows: “Chaos: When the present determines the future, but the approximate present does not approximately determine the future.” (pg 68).

  • Chaotic behavior can be observed in many natural systems, such as weather and climate. This behavior can be studied through analysis of a chaotic mathematical model, or through analytical techniques such as recurrence plots and Poincaré maps.

"What advice I would give writer/directors? Try to be great. Try to give extra. Try to, you know, be bold. Try to invent your own reality. Try to, you know, do what has not been done before. I would just say don’t even get started if you’re going to just try to do some mediocre shit, because there’s so much of that. Don’t do it just to make noise. There’s too much noise. Give me something amazing. Give me something new. Give me something I haven’t seen before in a way I haven’t seen it. Let me feel something. Find some kind of magic. Go towards something that’s inexplicable. Give it to me. Give me something that’s aggressive and gnarly. Chew up the world. Come at it from some other place, but just don’t give me the same shit over and over again because I don’t want it."
