Snippets of Chaos

“Irregularity and unpredictability are important features of health. On the other hand, decreased variability and accentuated periodicities are associated with disease. Healthy systems don’t want homeostasis. They want chaos.” —John R. Van Eenwyk, “The Chaotic Dynamic* of Everyday Life,” Quest magazine

“One must have chaos within oneself if one is to be a dancing star.” Friedrichch Nietsche

“Half of what you know today will be obsolete in five years.  That prospect should fill you with excitement”
Vimala Blavatsky

“The Truth is like the bear.  Is it a gentle beast, a model for the stuffed animal children love?
Or is it a vicious carnivore that will rip you to shreds if you turn your back on it?
The answer is that it’s both.” Robert Morning Sky

“We are the sum of our efforts to change who we are. Identity is no museum piece sitting stock-still in a display case, but rather the endlessly astonishing synthesis of the contradictions of everyday life.”
Eduardo Galeano, Book of Embraces
