Chaos Theroy

Student: I was just listening to a TED talk about time and how the universe starts orderly and then entropy sets in. It said when you watch something in reverse you can immediately tell something is wrong, because things are becoming more organized. Entropy is the natural state of things

Socrates: The key tenant to Western Culture is organization; a constant focus on creating categorization and organization. Trying to control and annotate the natural world is unnatural. Native American Culture is exactly opposite; trying to live in the natural world. If living in the natural world is chaos, then the history of the Western World is about trying to unsuccessfully control chaos.
